Open and Affirming Covenant
Our faith community welcomes persons of all
ages, races, nationalities ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities,
mental and physical abilities, family structures, socioeconomic levels
and political and theological backgrounds.
All people are encouraged to participate and share their talents and energy in worship, sacraments, leadership positions, ministry, service and fellowship.
We encourage peaceful and respectful expression coming from
our varied cultures and backgrounds.
We strive to create a sanctuary
where people of diversity are honored and welcomed.
We don't have the answer to every question,
but we will share in the search for meaning and purpose.
Our doors and our hearts are open to you as we affirm all
who follow Christ’s commandment “love one another as I have loved you.”
If you have been rejected by other churches, by society,
or by a family of faith elsewhere, join us and see the difference.
