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 SERVICES AND events

On Sunday, June 23, at 10 a.m. the service highlights our efforts to be a More Light congregation. Following worship at 11:30 a.m. Rev. Jeff Kunkel will invite conversation around this topic on how we extend God’s welcome to all. On Sunday, June 30, we worship in Fellowship Hall (not the Sanctuary) and the service is followed by brunch and congregational conversations around Mission study work which must be done prior to calling a new permanent pastor. July 7 is family communion Sunday.
