church front We are a welcoming, affirming, and safe congregation for all who attend—whoever you are, whatever your journey or background. God excludes no one, and neither do we. 

Our mission is to reveal the love of Christ in all its tenderness and grandeur to the community in which we live. We desire to embrace the wonder of humanity in its complexity, diversity, and beauty--and to do so without precondition. In short, we yearn to reveal the splendor of Christ and to affirm the worth of all people.
