A Word from our Rector:  

 

 

We’re glad you found your way to our website. If you’re looking for a church committed to making God’s love tangible in our community - a love that does not discriminate or exclude but embraces and celebrates the inherent goodness of all people, a place where people are nourished by God’s word and where it’s safe to share doubts and grapple with tough questions in an effort to learn and grow in the faith - you’ve reached the right place. We invite you to come and see. We look forward to welcoming you.  ~Peter

these Wednesday morning gatherings will provide an opportunity to pause
from our activity and busyness and reground our hearts in God. I look
forward to seeing you. Come and be changed.
