We are an inclusive community

Because God’s love is for everyone, so is ours. So – whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever your abilities, whoever you love, however you identify, if you’ve been here a long time or are visiting for the first time, whether you’re joining us in-person or online,  just as God joyfully welcomes you, so do we!
