Affirmation of Welcome

We believe that all people are blessed and loved equally by God. Following the teachings of Jesus we heartily welcome everyone into God’s covenantal community. Whatever your race, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic or marital status, variety of thoughts and beliefs, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression – whoever you are and wherever you come from you are welcome into the full life and ministry of our church.

Who We Are

Our church building has stood at a busy intersection in town for over 200 years trying to offer people encouragement and empowerment at the many crossroads in their lives. We are a vibrant and forward-looking Christian community committed to being open and affirming to all. We have a deep commitment to serving God in the greater community and a high priority placed on educating our children and youth.

We consider all God’s people to be on an equally valid journey of faith. We seek to work with other faith communities to share resources and opportunities beneficial to all. We center our worship on the life and teachings of Jesus as a model to follow, seeking always to better the human condition. We are all on unique paths in life, from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, worshipping and working as one.
