Loving God and Our Neighbors

We are a congregation that lives out our love of neighbor BECAUSE we love God and ourselves.

We value being a church where everyone is welcome.

We value being a church who walks with those who are struggling.

We value being a church that emphasizes care on the margins– children, elders, those enduring poverty, veterans.

We value being a church embodied WHERE WE ARE.
