We are an open and affirming community, following the teachings of Jesus. We seek God's will for today through an inner journey of spiritual reflection and an outer journey of engagement in community life.


Our worship style is relaxed, featuring music ranging from Bach to Bluegrass. We offer weekly communion to all who hear Christ's invitation. We honor the early traditions of the universal church, recognize the rites of all other Christian denominations, and actively support Christian unity.
