We are a church in progress, very much like life in progress--just corporate. You are more than welcome to come join us discover how to grow in God, reach out with God's love and grace, and put out there our faith in action. I like what the Reconciling Ministries say, "BOL: Believe Out Loud!"
Join us if you want to make a difference, if you think beyond yourself and your needs, if you think God is bigger than anything you can think of, if you want dignity for all. Join us to discover God's gifts for you and the world. Join us if you want to be relevant and lead and live a God-life.
We are a connectional church, in that we are a part of the global church that is the United Methodist Church who has churches and mission presence all around the world. Together, we respond to God's call to authentic discipleship and responsible stewardship as shown by Jesus Christ. As we transform ourselves, we transform the world through love, justice, mercy, compassion-- where we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, free the oppressed, walk with the poor, advocate for the marginalized and invisible. This is a lifetime walk with God, ever growing and ever deepening, and ever striving to live powered by the Holy Spirit.
Join us in this journey. It is an adventure worth living for and getting excited about!
It's all about God!
