GATHER in grace~

We gather in worship to receive the promise that God, in Christ, loves us more than we can begin to ask or imagine. None of us earn or choose the love in which we gather: it’s simply given. We are a Reconciling in Christ CongregationAs such, we uphold the words of the Apostle Paul:  “In Christ, there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female.”  (Galatians 3:28) Christ has made us all one.  We believe that this oneness extends to all persons regardless of gender identity, race, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identities, or religious, economic, or political affiliation. All are welcome!

GROW in faith~ 

We grow in the grace given in Christ and his call to the joyful sharing of his light through through regular worship; Bible Studies; Fellowship; Worship Team; Choirs; Women of the ELCA; Outreach; and Fellowship.

GO with love~
