“No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.”
We welcome doubts and certainties, failed dreams and dreams that come true, true love and broken hearts, tears, laughter and everything in between, gay, straight and everything along the spectrum, rich and poor, right and left, God is still speaking through it, and through us all.
We care for each other and for our larger world.
We offer prayer shawl ministries, meditation groups, prayer circle, senior luncheon, bus ministry, nursery and childcare. stephens ministry (lay pastoral care.), youth ministry, and pastoral visits. God’s love is embodied here. We also tend to the planet through our Be Earth Stewards Today team.
The Spirit moves here.
Our children thrive in The Learning Community, Sunday School that runs from Nursery through High School. Our Youth participate in programs that include outings, and service outings and opporunities.
Children also take regular leadership roles in Sunday Worship at 10 a.m. where we are blessed with 6 music ensembles which allow us to offer of a variety of music and worship styles.
We offer an ongoing Adult Religious Study program and several occasional book study groups.
We are a Covenant Partner with Habitat for Humanity. We partner with houseless services in the community. We partner with Framework International to build schools in Ghana.
Jesus’ love. To Everyone. Everywhere.
We espouse the central tenets of Progressive Christianity which acknowledges the validity and beauty of all the world’s religions while following our own path.
We recognize the foundational imperative of our faith to transform the world into the “kindom of God,” not promoting the exclusivity of Christian faith but the fundamental notion that we are all “kin” to each other and need to treat each other as such.
We do not require adherence to any creed or test of faith, but rather encourage everyone to continually grow on their journey of faith and understanding.
We embrace a vision of More Joy. More Justice, More Compassion. In our hearts, In our homes. In our communities. In our world.
To realize this vision, we work in active partnerships with as many churches, community groups, and institutions as we can, including several partnerships with Pacific University, an institution we founded back in 1845.
