Our mission is to be disciples of radical inclusivity, racial, and gender equity.
If you’re looking for a church home that is engaging, creative, and inviting… come join us in worship on Sunday mornings!
We are a small church with mighty hearts. We share out loud, pray together, laugh together, and know one another by name. The sound of healthy and safe kids are welcome in our sanctuary where they have a pray-ground just for them. There’s childcare available all year for worship and events. You can hear what our worship and sermons are like here.
Our congregation is a part of the United Church of Christ. Followers of the just and joyful way of Jesus – and formed from the core value that a diversity of beliefs in our religion is a strength. In other words we are the kind of church that encourages questions, knows each individual has their own experience of faith, and supports one another as a community to be united in love and service to our communities.
Every Sunday morning we gather at 10:00 AM for worship. Kids stay with us for the first third of the service, then continue in SunShine school downstairs where they pray and play. On the first Sunday of the month we share in Communion and all ages worship together. Ours is a table of God’s love open to everyone!
In between services we have events you can see on our calendar page, and you can subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Facebook to stay connected. Past events include things like anti-racism workshops, Queer Theology workshops, Vacation Bible School with a sister church, marching for Immigrant Rights, seasonal bible studies during Advent and Lent, arts and crafts, and more.
It can be a little hard to find us if you are a using a GPS – sometimes it will put you at the Super Target nearby. Instead keep to the left on Quebec avenue at the Jiffy Lube. If target is on your right, come around the corner, and we’ll be right there at the end of the road waiting for you. We have ample parking, and a lift elevator if you have mobility issues.
You can get in touch with our Pastor on Su/M/Tue/Wed through email (email@example.com) or by phone (612.399.6124.)
