Welcome and thanks for visiting our website. You’ll find information here about our history, what’s happening now, and what we hope for the future.
We’re a “come as you are” congregation, so whether you’re in jeans or a suit and tie, come on in, find a pew you like, and make yourself comfortable.
We are also an Opening and Affirming congregation. Here’s our Open and Affirming Covenant of Welcome:
Jesus accepts all people. We aspire to follow his example. We gladly invite and welcome all persons into the life and ministry of this faith community and to full participation in all the sacraments and rites of this church. Since we believe that all people are created in the image of God and are loved by God, we welcome those of every age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, faith background, national or ethnic origin, physical and mental ability, kind of family, socioeconomic status, and physical appearance. Seeking justice for everyone, we promise to offer intentional and extravagant welcome to all God’s children.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here!
