Our Mission & Values

Deep Roots, Servant Hearts, Open Arms

We are rooted in Christian heritage and celebrate our connection with our brothers and sisters in all times and places.

We cultivate an ethic of service, working for peace and justice and respecting the dignity of all people.

We welcome folks wherever they are on their spiritual path understanding that questions & doubts are part of the journey.

Our Ongoing Response to COVID-19

Continually flexible to meet the needs of our people and keep all in our community safe. Currently we worship in-person with masks required and offer a live stream for those who prefer that option.

Creation . Redemption . Restoration .

Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we find ourselves called into a life of justice, mercy, dignity and respect, a life that walks in the way of Jesus, the way that is the Way of Love.
