No Matter Who You Are Or Where You Are On Life's Journey, You Are Welcome Here!
We are single individuals, couples, and families of various configurations and sizes.
We are people of different ages and walks of life.
We are a blended family of individuals who have been brought up with a wide range of faith and non-faith traditions.
We respect and honor all faith traditions and believe in interfaith partnership with open dialogue.
We believe that everyone should be free to question and wrestle with theology.
We come from a variety of political and social backgrounds.
We enjoy thinking and sharing ideas and opinions.
We stay committed to loving each other even when we disagree.
We share a unified vision and work diligently as a congregation to live by our Core Values.
We love our history and tradition, but try not to worship them as we understand that as "God is still speaking" to us today, new history and traditions are being created.
We take the scriptures very seriously, but usually not literally.
We worship in many creative ways and at different times and days of the week.
We love to have children and adults actively involved in meaningful worship.
We care for each other through good times and bad. Due to events of December 14, 2012 in our town, we know what it is to have our hearts broken. We continue to shed tears while finding ways to share laughter and smiles as well.
We know that God in Christ is calling our church, and each of us, to new ways of being; we are supportive of each individual’s spiritual journey and work as a congregation to discern and live out our greater purpose.
We consistently work to find ways to serve God beyond our walls.
"Do Not Forget To Entertain Strangers,
For By Doing So, Some People Have Entertained Angels Without Knowing It."
