Our Values

All are welcome here. For the love of God we really mean it, but if you are looking for the perfect church, we are NOT it. We are an imperfect group of people on a faith journey together. And, imperfect people of all ages, differing abilities, ethnicities, gender identities, income levels, races, and sexual orientations are welcome and fully included in the ever-widening circle of this faith community.
