We are an inclusive Christian faith community of people who struggle with cutting edge issues—trying to discern how best to be loving to all in the name of Jesus Christ.
Because of the spontaneous joy and relationships we have together in the Spirit, our worship is joyful.
Our Christian education classes for all ages encourage people to wrestle with faith issues, ask questions, and articulate their faith in their daily life.
Our hope is that each person who participates in the life of this faith community can express the love of God in the world through acts of justice, mercy and peace.
