Who We Are

We are a lively, growing congregation of people who are called to spread the good news of the Kingdom of God through beautiful and enriching worship, openness to the diversity of God's people and creation, pastoral care for one another, thought-provoking Christian formation, challenging programs and intentional community outreach. With God’s help, it is our vision to be a vibrant faith community that is a blazing beacon of God’s transforming love in the world. God is calling us to take righteous risks. We accept this call, and will respond by seeking and serving Christ in ALL people. Above all, we believe that Christian service begins by the command to "Welcome one another…as Christ welcomed you." We are all guests at the Lord's table. Come and join us.
