WES is a humanistic congregation that affirms the worth of every person. Our Sunday Platform Service is the heart of our community life. This is where we gather to reflect, to share companionship, and to refresh and renew our commitment to creating a more ethical world. We warmly welcome visitors to join us, participate in our activities, and get to know our community. Here's what to expect on Sunday mornings...
Holidays with Meaning

Looking for non-materialistic ways to celebrate the holidays? WES has plenty to choose from. For starters, there’s a three-Sunday platform service series called "The Holidays with Integrity":
December 8 -- Mary Herman will address how to be with family with integrity—including the lovable, the wacky and the difficult people we may be related to.
December 15 -- Amanda Poppei will talk about doing rituals with integrity--especially when they aren't our own, and
December 22 – Amanda will conclude the series on giving gifts with integrity, considering both the international economic system and just what gifts mean spiritually.
The integrity theme ties in too, of course, with the Winter Festival on December 14, which tells the story of an unlikely encounter with the power of generosity. As with all Winter Festivals at the Ethical Society, there's a good deal of audience participation, singing, a children's candle lighting and cookie walk. Then there is the Giving Tree, which gives WES members the opportunity to buy gifts for local families.
And don’t forget the Bazaar following platform on December 8, where you can buy repurposed gifts and handmade crafts.
See the Calendar for more details.
SHOP AMAZON, and help raise $$ for WES. WES is an Amazon Associate. That means every time you make a purchase through the WES link to Amazon seen below, up to 15% of what you spend will support WES. That includes not only books but all other items you purchase through Amazon. This could add up during the holiday season. All your Amazon customer info will still be the same--it's just a simple way to enter the Amazon site that benefits your WES community. Thank you!
