Called to be the Presence of Christ in Our Community
We are a community of faith on a journey to joyfully witness to God’s love and grace revealed by Christ through meaningful worship, discovering and affirming each of our unique gifts, and growing in our ability to reach out in love and service to each other and to our community.
We are all God’s children though differing in race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, physical or mental ability, political stance or theological perspective, and we welcome all people to God’s table, fellowship and service as God has welcomed us.
Wherever you are on your journey, join us. We honor and affirm our differences, unified in belief in Jesus Christ and honoring Love in all things: In Non-essentials Liberty, in Essentials Unity and In All Things Love.
