Welcome Statement

As followers of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:14-20) we are committed to living in community, practicing peacemaking that transcends socioeconomic barriers, acknowledges a diversity of perspectives, and welcomes all.     

We celebrate the image of God (Genesis 1:26) manifested in persons of every age, ethnicity, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, education, intellectual or emotional or physical ability, and economic or immigration status (Galatians 3:28). We strive to find common ground on which to build relationships with our neighbors near and far. As an inclusive faith community, we affirm that all persons, including LGBTQ+ persons, are welcome to fully participate in the life of our congregation, including membership, baptism, marriage, leadership, and pastoral ministry.

Approved at the October 28, 2018 congregational meeting.
