Faith with the brains, heart, and courage to lead you home.

Our theme for September is Homecoming. We’ll be focusing not just on gathering in for the fall, but on the idea of home in our personal and spiritual lives. Where do we find a sense of belonging and safety? How do we create that for others? Can we go home again? What if the location or people who made it home are gone? And why do so many of us long for a different kind of home, a community of true peace and justice? Are we homesick? Check out the special Sundays coming up, and invite someone to join you for them. Everyone deserves to find a place that feels like home!

Worship services are Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM. Nursery care is available and Sunday School returns every other week beginning Sunday, September 17th.
