Welcome
We are a progressive Christian community that gathers to listen, speak and act in a spirit of compassion justice and stewardship.  Wherever you are on your journey of life and faith, you are welcome here!  Sign our guest book to let us know more about you and what you are looking for in a community of faith.

Join Worship

Our worship is hybrid: in person and online (on Zoom or Youtube).  The service is at 10 am each Sunday.

View the bulletin for this week’s service. The Zoom link is provided in the bulletin. To view the livestream, and recordings of previous services, visit our YouTube channel.  For more information about in person worship, please visit the worship page.

Reparations

Making reparations for racial injustice is foundational to who we are.

As a predominantly white congregation, we are continually grappling with our legacy of white supremacy and colonialism. We are on a journey of listening and learning, building relationships and taking action.  Visit the justice page to learn more.
