A Liberal Church, Welcoming of All, Passionately Committed to Social Justice
Welcome to our website!
Our motto says it all: "A Liberal Church, Welcoming of All, Passionately Committed to Social Justice."
We're a diverse group of seekers who have covenanted to support and care for each other as we each discover how God's spirit of love is present and working in each of us.
We meet together each Sunday morning at 10 a.m. to celebrate, sing, learn and listen. Join us!
