A church that seeks seekers…We encourage questions, we honor differences of opinion, and we celebrate our similarities. Acknowledging our commitment to the Way of Jesus as told in the gospels, we support each individual’s spiritual journey. Though our understandings of God are varied, we describe the Holy One as mysterious, tenacious, unconditionally loving, genderless, forgiving and the source of all that is. And, we believe…
GOD IS STILL SPEAKING.
How does God call you to engage spiritually? In what ways does God ask you to put your faith into action? How do you want to make a difference…locally, nationally, globally? Perhaps these community and faith resources can help you discern your connection to God and move you to lead a more purpose-filled life centered in the Way of Jesus.
