"We are an inclusive people openly welcoming persons of all sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status or any other designation of individuals who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination by the church and society. We declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming congregation, professing that all people are God’s children and deserve full inclusion in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments of communion and baptism, as well as the church rites of marriage, death, and ordination, and the responsibilities, and blessings of participation in our congregation. With open hearts, open minds, and open doors, we invite anyone who seeks God’s amazing grace to join our church family. As Disciples, we find identity at the Lord’s table, practicing open communion for all and embracing our mission of building bridges of grace from the welcome table to every table."
Everyone is welcome.
We think with our heart and our mind.
Our creed is love.
We honor all paths to the Holy.

Blessed are those
who say yes to life;
yes to all of life.
Blessed are those
who share in the sorrows of the world,
who know they cannot cure the sorrows,
but choose to live beyond the sorrows.
Blessed are those
who know the world has always been a mess;
who know that in playfulness,
they find their place in this world.
J. David Griffin, Minister
