This is Christ’s church.
There is a place for you here. We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.
You are welcome to just "show up" to any of our worship services and we will give you a warm welcome! If you're curious about what worship looks like with us, check out the example worship service video below.
