Visitors are always welcome at all of our events, classes and services. And if you are new to WES and exploring Ethical Culture for the first time? Join one of our Leaders for an informal discussion about our philosophy and programs, have a chance to ask questions, and to share what you are looking for in a congregation at a Newcomer’s Q & A. These brief sessions are offered on the first Sunday of each month. Contact Amanda Poppei, firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to Expect on a Sunday
Our building is equipped with an elevator and is accessible for persons with disabilities.
Children are welcome to attend the Platform or Sunday School. A greeter will show you where the Sunday School meets and introduce you to the Director of Lifelong Learning. Children generally start out in their classes and then come upstairs to join their parents in the Main Hall toward the end of the service.
At the start of the platform, a bell will sound. This is a signal to take your seat in the Main Hall, where an usher will hand you a program. Our platform service includes opening words, a community candlelighting, music and singing, meditation time, a platform address, community sharing time, and a collection.
