Sunday Service Starts at 10:00AM

A Christian Community focused on glorifying God by being:

Welcoming in worship

We warmly welcome visitors and all God’s children into our Sunday services, where strangers become friends every week.

Inclusive by intention

Our passion is in celebrating our diversity, from age to sexual orientation to race. We’re known for it – it’s our signature value.

Joyful in doing justice

We will stand with those oppressed by discrimination and poverty, and in helping them in concrete ways to overcome.

Steadfast in loving God and neighbor

This is our heartbeat – loving God with all we have, and serving ALL of our neighbors through creative ministries and outreach.
