We welcome all


Feeling confined by labels?

You've come to the right place.

Gay or straight, rich or poor, confident or doubtful, happy or sad, believer or not--this is the place for you. 

And if you don't fit into a category, all the better, we can't wait to get to know you.

Open and Affirming

We have roots


Our roots are deep and nourishing, but we are not stuck in the past. 

Proud of our heritage, we are also listening for the Still Speaking God who is with us now and into the future.

Why not join us as we look to a future with hope?


About Us

We belong


​Like you, we don't exist in a vacuum but rely on a larger community. We belong with others who have a passion for the liberating good news.


Part of the United Church of Christ, we are in a family of some pretty interesting people. Check us out to see just how rich and varied we are.
