Deliberately Diverse & Fully Inclusive

We seek to be a deliberately diverse community of faith – our strength grows in proportion to the diversity of the voices in our midst. Our congregation is made up of a variety of people from a variety of backgrounds and socio-economic status; we are rich, poor, homeless, housed, black, white, gay and straight, and we gather together to live into our call to be the Body of Christ.
