Easter Sunday
is just
the beginning...

We invite you to a community where we all belong. Whether you are a believer, a doubter or a seeker; in Christ’s love, we welcome you. By the power of the Holy Spirit we will work to extend God’s grace, love, justice and dignity inside and outside our church.
