We are an "open and affirming" congregation welcoming all to our fellowship regardless of age, gender, race, or economic status, or sexual orientation.
No dress code
A progressive theology
Church can happen anywhere. It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
