Wouldn't it be great if there were a church...

 

...that truly welcomes all people regardless of religious background, age, race or sexual orientation?

...that is grounded in a long and amazing history yet embraces current forms of inspiration and the cultivation of soul?

 

...that refuses to concede the Bible to mean-spirited and literal-minded interpretations and instead holds up the clarion calls for compassion and justice we hear in the scriptures?

...that encourages people to bring their whole selves to a service on Sundays and not simply check their brains at the door?

 
...with a long history of working for social change that actually speaks to the major issues of the day?
 

Well, there is a church like this, and we invite you to come check out our services and programs.
