Life, together in the orchard.
Come as you are
As a community of faith, it is our privilege to love all, knowing that the world is often an unloving place. Affirming with the apostle Paul that in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female” (Galatians 3:28). Christ has made us one to share a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by that grace, we will embrace you as a whole person – questions, complexities and all.
We welcome all who are seeking God's love and grace. Welcoming all because God welcomes us, regardless of race or culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship status. Welcoming all without regard to addictions, physical or mental health, imprisonment, socio-economic circumstances, or anything that too often divides us. Our unity is in Christ.
There is a place for you here in the orchard.
Worship this Sunday at 10:30am
Visiting a new church can be intimidating. To help ease your concerns, we would like to share a little about what to expect as a guest.
To start, you will find plenty of parking upon your arrival and a warm greeting when you come inside. Coffee or tea is almost always on, grab a bulletin from an usher, and find a seat in the sanctuary.
Worship is at the center of who we are as God's people. It is what keeps us grounded. That worship is based in the rich traditions of the Christian church. In those traditions there is a pattern of gathering together to hear and reflect on God's Word for our lives and our world, to pray together, share a meal and then sent out to share that grace with the world that God loves.
