Who We Are

OUR MISSION is to practice and improve our faithful progress along Christ’s path,
while inviting others to join us in the walk. We value diversity of race, ethnicity, ability, age and orientation as well as the variety of gifts, interests and passions among us. We see each person as a unique and precious aspect of God’s love.
OUR VISION of the ideal faith walk is expressed in the life of our church.
Sharing God’s love and acceptance
Our communion table is open to all, regardless of where they have been or what they have done. Our theology uplifts the spirit of God’s love rather than rigid doctrine; in that spirit, we welcome discussion and questioning. Each person is treated with respect and without judgment, so trust and intimacy may thrive.
