Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!
We say this a lot, and we mean it.
No matter your age, race, ethnicity, ability, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, economic status, or any other label, you can find a home with us. For us, welcoming all kinds of people is no grudging compromise – it is a key part of how our faith interacts with the world. We welcome all because we believe that’s what Jesus did, and we want to be like him.
The technical aspects of welcome that you might like to know: Our whole building is wheelchair accessible. Our restrooms are also accessible, single-stall, gender neutral, and one is equipped with a baby/toddler changing table. We have activity bags for kids and a playground and plenty of space out back for kids to run around safely. Finally, we also have listening devices during our services for those who may have a difficult time hearing. If there’s any other way that we can make you feel comfortable and welcome, please let us know — we’re always trying to get better at welcoming everybody.
By the way, as of 2017, we are a Reconciling in Christ congregation. To find out more about what that means, click here.
Our congregation is full of very different, opinionated, smart people – and we love that! In this age of division, what brings such different people together is our desire to love, to learn, to eat, pray, and worship together, and to serve each other and the world. We try to follow Jesus as fully and simply as we can.
For us, faith is interactive, and our worship is, too. We follow a pattern called “liturgy,” which literally means “the work of the people.” Our faith and our worship are rooted in real, earthy things: water, bread, wine, words of love, and acts of service to our neighbors.
Our Sunday services begin at 10:15 every single Sunday morning. Our worship is simple, accessible, and very musical, with roots in ancient Christian faith and the Lutheran tradition. Most of our congregation dresses casually; we were a “jeans church” before it was cool!
During the fall and winter, you might even catch us in football jerseys.
YES, we welcome everyone …even Jets & Bills fans!
After worship, if you’d like, you’re invited to stay for coffee, snacks, and conversation.
We all look forward to greeting you!
