Celebrating Together

Join us for worship this Sunday at 10 am. We will be worshiping in-person once a month, and on Zoom for other Sundays. Please check the events listed below to know when we are in-person. We are experimenting with streaming our in-person services.

Statement Against Systemic Racial Violence

We believe that brown and black lives matter. In the face of ongoing persecution and lynching, God stands in solidarity with them. As Christians, we sing with Mary that our “Lord has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly” (Luke 1:52). As followers of Jesus, a man of color executed by the state, we stand with God in solidarity with those who are oppressed. We stand troubled and emboldened by the Spirit, not just to cry out for justice but also to work for systemic change. God loves all; love requires us to practice justice so that we can live in a world where all can flourish without fear.

Due to the Delta variant, we are asking everyone to mask when in the building. Masking keeps us and those around…
