Our Approach

We gather together in community each week to be reminded of God’s love for each of us and for the world. We are fed through the reading of scripture, communion, music, and preaching. We are then sent out by Jesus and equipped by the Holy Spirit to do God’s work of love and justice in the world. Join us!
