Open minds. Open hearts. Open doors.




May we not be of one heart,
though we are not of one opinion?
Without all doubt, we may.

Herein all the children of God may unite;
they may forward one another in love and in good works.

- John Wesley

This week's Sermon:

Created for Good Works

Fourth Sunday in Lent (March 11th, 2018)

John 3:14-21; Ephesians 2:1-10

Who We Are

There are sweet expressions on each face,
   And I know they feel the presence of the Lord.

      "Sweet, Sweet Spirit"

We have been told that there is a warmth that comes from the gathering of kindred spirits when we come together in community. We strive to be accepting, welcoming, and affirming of all God's children, even the ones we haven't met yet!

We are a family of believers who worship God and work for God's kingdom. We are a congregation that comes together from all walks of life. Some of us are new to our faith, and some of us have been walking for nearly a century; we are all excited about our journey together.

What We Do

We worship...
in insightful, contemplative, and sometimes surprising ways. In worship, we find individual connections with God that deepen our faiths, and we gather as a community of believers that celebrate the faith we share.

‌‌‌ About our Services

We study...
the Word, seeking a greater understanding of our role in creation as unique and unrepeatable miracles of God.

 ‌‌ Sunday School

We serve...
in community, ministering to one another and to the world around us. We find joy in the work of God's kingdom and express the love we have been shown in our service to others.
