What to Expect

Our congregation is warm and friendly, and we welcome visitors to our worship service.  While people will greet you before and after the service, no one will single you out in worship or make you stand. We don’t like to embarrass our guests!

What to wear

Dress comfortably for worship. Most people dress up just a little, but you’ll also see suits, jeans, and shorts.


We believe that all people should be able to participate fully in worship and in church life regardless of their physical, developmental, or cognitive abilities.

Connecting in Christ, Transforming Lives

Mission Statement

Connecting in Christ, Transforming Lives.

We come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Jesus Christ brings us together to worship, learn, grow, and support each other. Our own lives are transformed here within the church community, and then we go out into the world and participate in God’s work of transforming lives in mission.

God welcomes all people, and so do we!  We are an open and affirming congregation, welcoming all people into full participation and leadership, regardless of age, gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, or economic resources.  We hold diverse opinions on politics and everything else, yet we celebrate our differences because they make us stronger as a community of disciples.
