We are a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by God’s unconditional love shown through Christ, we embrace you as a whole person – questions, complexities and all. We have them too.
Our ambition is to create community that affirms, welcomes and supports everyone just the way they are in age, race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic or family status, physical or mental abilities.
Come add your perspectives and life experiences to the diversity of views as we gather to share each hope and dream, each challenge and concern, each joy and lament, building up the message of love, respect and authenticity for one another.

Reflection or Question for the Week:
When have words helped us?
When have they hurt?
Luke 23: 33 – 43
When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified Jesus there with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots to divide his clothing. And the people stood by, watching; but the leaders scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Messiah of God, his chosen one!” The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine, and saying, “If you are the King of the Judeans, save yourself!” There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Judeans.”
One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, “Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”
But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.”
Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
