Heading 3

COME AS YOU ARE: 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.

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. On Sunday morning, a greeter will  greet you in the Narthex gathering area.  Introduce yourself as a first time guest so that they can show you where to go. Grab a cup of coffee and a treat, a bulletin from an usher, and find a seat in the sanctuary.
