Who We Are

We are called to be Christ's partners in reconciliation, sharing the good news of God's radically inclusive, welcoming love.

As a More Light Presbyterian congregation, we strive to provide a welcome for LGBTQIA+ people.  
As a multicultural community, we are intentional about living as the Beloved Community.
As a multi-age family, we recognize the gifts children and youth bring to worship and community life.

Upcoming Events

“Be still and know that I am God” - at 7 p.m. in the Session Room, Elder Shawn Jones leads the group through guided meditative prayer. This offering is available on the first Monday of the month.

6/8 - GARDENING MORNING

Join with others from the Gardening team for some light clean up on the grounds and plenty of fellowship on the second Saturdays of the month. The group meets in the inner courtyard for coffee and treats at 9:30 a.m. Green thumbs not a requirement for joining this group!

6/9 - 10:00 A.M. PENTECOST SUNDAY AND CONGREGATIONAL LUNCH

Come and celebrate the birthday of the church by worshiping with us and attending a lunch in Fellowship Hall after the service. There is to be a congregational wide conversation facilitated by the Mission Study update team following lunch to consider together who we are and who we hope to become with the leadership of a new installed pastor.

6/30 - 9 A.M. BREAKFAST AND WORSHIP IN FELLOWSHIP HALL

Plan to join in for another Mission Study Update team event to be held in the hall. We begin with breakfast, worship together and then have table conversations relating to the right kind of leadership needed for us to move forward in joy as a congregation.
