Our core belief is that God's love is so wide and deep that it includes absolutely everyone. We see ourselves as being a community of believers, seekers, and people who strive to ground their lives in Jesus Christ's command to love. We try to be especially sensitive to the newcomer, as well as caring for one another and for people outside our congregation.
If something here catches your eye, we hope you will take the next step and contact or visit us.
Directions to either of our locations can be found at the bottom of the About Uspage.
