Do you love the Christmas season, but are just not sure about this whole “church” thing?  

It so often seems that churches can be judgmental and even bigoted.  Or maybe you're just not sure about some of those who call themselves Christians, and maybe your experience of church has felt more about judgment than joy.  Well, we get that….  Read on below!

You want to find a church that understands that families come in all shapes and sizes, a church that won't bash on people because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, or who have lots of tattoos or piercings, or who are single parents, or who are struggling with addictions.

We get that.

You believe that God is love.  Period.  Maybe you are tired of churches that tell you whom you should hate.  You want a community that knows that God's grace is for everyone and that all really does mean all!

We get that, too! 

And you know what? That's what we believe too!  We're not into deciding whom God can't love, or judging folks based on things that don't matter one iota to a God who loves all and welcomes and wants hope and justice for all.  

Intrigued?  Didn't think there was a church like that?

Come join us during the weeks leading up to Christmas on Sunday morning for virtual worship or come to our virtual Christmas Eve service available beginning at noon on our YouTube page. This service of “Lessons and Carols” includes communion (where ALL are welcome to participate) and close with the singing of "Silent Night" and the lighting of candles.

If you like what you discover, we also invite you to check us out online on Sunday mornings for worship at 11:00 a.m.
