A TYPICAL SUNDAY SERVICE
We are a fairly traditional style church starting at 11:00 a.m. where we sings hymns, have a choir and use bulletins, but that may be where the similarities end...
We are a welcoming and affirming church, particularly serving as a safe place for people of the LGBTQ community to practice their faith.
We look to Scripture and preach the gospel about Jesus and his vision of justice against racism, sexism, homophobia, and economic oppression. We listen for what the Holy Spirit is up to in our community.
We treat each other as a family here, and we invite you to join in.
No matter where you are coming from, you are welcome. Any attire is appropriate. Come early for some coffee and snacks!
