God’s love abounds here! With that love, we are grounded in our belief in Christ, yet we explore and approach that belief differently based on our own ideals, thoughts and experiences.

The Spirit lives within and around us all, no matter our gender, color, sexual orientation, age, or financial status. And so, we welcome you to come and experience the Spirit’s abiding presence and to deepen your faith with us. We can’t wait to meet you!

Welcome to

We are a vibrant and growing church drawing members from many surrounding towns. We welcome all people as children of God and value that our members come from many Christian traditions. This breadth of theological perspectives allows us to learn from one another and helps us grow in our own Christian faith in an atmosphere of love and respect.
