Plan your visit

We welcome you to this place of rest, laughter, growth and joy.   We believe that God is most clearly known where diverse people seek new insights, question hurtful assumptions, employ a multiplicity of images for the Divine, and create a warm, welcoming and inclusive community in the name of Jesus Christ.

Be you member, friend or a visitor for the first time, you are welcome. We seek to be inclusive and welcoming of all.  It is faith that defines us and gives us hope in a world that is crazy and confused.  Come with us and make sense of this world in a group of those who call themselves Christian.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

We would be thrilled to welcome you into our church family!  Speak to the pastor for information.

There are three ways to become a member:

  1. Profession of Faith is the first and most significant step a person takes in his or her faith journey. At this time the individual receives Jesus Christ into his or her life and professes that reception before the worshiping congregation. Baptism is administered if the person has not already been baptized as an infant or child.
  2. Letter of Transfer when a person has been active in another church and requests for us to obtain a Letter from that church.
  3. Reaffirmation of Faith is for those who have made a Profession of Faith and were once involved in a church but have been inactive for some time.  They now wish to reaffirm their faith.
