Jesus made it simple to understand: “Whoever welcomes you welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the One who sent me.” (Mark 9:37) You are a beloved Child of God! Your beliefs, doubts and questions are welcome. You are welcome here just as you are and just as you are becoming. We are an inclusive, progressive, congregation called to Love, Learn, Liberate and Lead. 
 
Our Sunday Worship Experience includes singing, prayer, scripture, teaching and communion. The order and style may change while our focus of connecting with God and each other remains. Dress is casual. Be comfortable. God and we are more concerned with our souls, our thoughts, words and actions than what we are wearing.
 
Communion is served every Sunday. Sometimes a person serves you and shares a blessing while other times you may be invited to come to the table and serve yourself. All are welcome to receive. You don’t have to be a member of this church or any church. We believe it is God’s table and that God is the one who gives the invitation. We use grape juice in the common cup not wine. For those who have health restrictions, we have gluten free wafers available.
 
Sometimes we sit in rows, sometimes in a semi-circle, and sometimes we sit at tables – whatever helps further our theme and focus. We almost always have tables available for families with young children so the kids have a place to draw, color or place their toys and drinks. We provide theme related coloring pages and crayons, colored pencils and markers.
 
While we always sing as part of our worship experience, we sometimes have a praise band, sometimes a pianist and sometimes we sing with worship music videos. We sing more contemporary music yet do mix in traditional hymns and songs.
 
Our Worship and Teaching are Bible based while not literalist. We apply biblical scholarship to our study and application of the Word. In addition to issues of translation, we consider the historical and cultural context of a passage as well as its context within the whole of Scripture. We seek to be aware of our own social and religious biases that we may read into the text rather than letting the Spirit and text speak in a fresh way. We believe that the Word of God is a living, breathing text and that Spirit continues to speak through these ancient words. God still speaks to us through many means not the least of which is our own prayer and meditation.
