You’re welcome here. As disciples of Christ who value the faith, gifts, and ministry of all God’s people, and who seek justice and reconciliation, we welcome all God’s children to an inclusive community. This welcome is extended without exception and regardless of sex, race, national origin, educational background, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical and mental ability, age, or economic condition. 

The pandemic continues to bring our congregation so many questions. In this strange situation, how can we lead one another to discipleship? How can we form our children in the faith, practice, and ethics of this faith community? How can we worship together under the latest set of guidelines?

And other, greater questions aren’t going away. How can we help to build a society that is more fair, more just, and more inclusive? How can we help to dismantle the racist structures that distort our nation? How can we resist threats to Earth’s beautiful and sacred climate?

All these are serious questions, ultimate questions, because Jesus calls us here and now to love God and our neighbors. We’re searching – through shared study, through worship, through service, through prayer – to find, not ultimate answers, but simply the next steps to take. It’s hard work. We invite you to join us in the search.

COVID-19 Precautions
