Celebrating Together, online

Our building is closed, but our hearts are open, online. Join us for worship this Sunday at 10 am via Zoom where we continue to gather every Sunday.

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.

Supporting trans kids with Fierce Families

For some of us, it is important to support our trans-siblings. Join Fierce Families in their effort to stop anti-trans school board candidates.

That’s the exact opposite of what kids need – support – no matter if they are trans or not. The anti-trans candidate is a backlash to the success that Fierce Families fought for last…
