Who We Are

  • We are people searching for meaning in life.
  • We are people who enjoy our time together: caring, accepting and loving each other.
  • We are single, married, not married, separated, divorced and remarried.
  • We are seekers of truth, equality, justice and compassion.
  • We are people very new to the church and many who have been here longer than they care to remember.


  • We are folks who know little about the Bible and those who know quite a bit about it.


  • We are Sunday morning only members and those who come to everything.


  • We are beginners on the journey of faith along with those who have travelled quite a distance.

Our Community

"That they may all be one."  John 17:21


We are a community of all walks of life: women, men, sons, daughters, one-parent and two-parent families, grandparents, children and friends.  We are diverse in gender, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, abilities, and ethnicity.  But most importantly, we are a community that really care about one another and strive to show our love of God and love of neighbor as best we can.
