You are welcome here.

You are welcome here as a child of God.

We extend our welcome to people of all races, cultures, and colors; to people of all sexual orientations; to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities; to people of every legal, economic and marital status; and to all those whom the world seeks to separate, divide or isolate. We celebrate your identity as a gift from God and we welcome you to a diverse community of believers united in our faith.

You are welcome here to accept Christ's redeeming love.

We invite you to bring your disappointments, transgressions, losses and pain and lay them at the cross. We welcome you to a grace given freely to all, unearned by our worldly successes and undeterred by our spiritual failures.

You are welcome to a community of joy and service, empowered by the Holy Spirit.

We share with you God's call to serve our neighbor, expressing divine love in acts of hospitality, outreach and kindness. We commit ourselves to offering openness and understanding, justice and healing, to all people.

"Welcome one another therefore, just as Christ welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
