Connect. Grow. Serve.

 He will be with us this Sunday June 23rd and again on June 30th.

We often serve God by serving each other. Those in our community know that we all are an extended family in this church, ready to bring Godly love in the form of rides or meals, prayers and hugs.

In worship we remind ourselves of the way God sees the world, become fed with a more ‘grace oriented’ view of life, and leave inspired to bring that perception back into the daily lives we live.

Who We Are as a Thoughtful Religious Community

At our church — a thoughtful, religious community — you can draw a connecting line between sports and spirituality. You can combine cooking and the divine.

You can see how families in the bible are related — truly related — to your family, with all the joy, struggle, sorrow and love.

For others, maybe you, the answer isn’t so clear. You may wonder: does the bible have guidance I can use right now? Can it help me find meaning and purpose in my life? Will the pastor connect past and future? Will this community welcome my whole family? Do I belong?

You do belong.

Your questions are healthy. And you and your family will be welcomed. You’ll also find that we embrace tradition, but we’re not stuffy. We mix spirituality and reason. And we know that it’s our job to bring scripture into lively conversation with your lived experience.

So, why do we go to church?

Because we are all related. And at the end of the day, the end of the week, it feels good to be with family.
It feels good to be part of something bigger than ourselves. It’s the body of Christ.
And you are already part of it.

So why not come home?

Children and Youth

In worship we remind ourselves of the way God sees the world, become fed with a more ‘grace oriented’ view of life, and leave inspired to bring that perception back into the daily lives we live.

SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

Through prayer, study, and reflection we become more attuned to the Spirit’s urging and presence in our lives. This is a practice that involves both the mind and the spirit as we seek to have our beings move more closely with who God would have us be.

SERVICE AND MISSION

We often serve God by serving each other. Our care starts in service to each other. Those in our community know that we all are an extended family in this church, ready to bring Godly love in the form of rides or meals, prayers and hugs. We also partner with different agencies in our larger community who serve the different social justice needs in our city.

FELLOWSHIP AND OUTREACH

In faith communities the Greek word, koinonia, has come to mean more than just community. We think of it as the result of coming together. It’s the power of people united! In that spirit we do gather for fellowship and care. This includes everything from beach bonfires and picnics to concerts and shows. (United Methodists are also quite famous for potlucks!) We also look to these ministries as an entry point into the faith community. For some, these events in the Christian spirit can feed their souls. For others, the gatherings can become the start of a journey into deeper faith and meaning in life.
