We welcome you to our community!
We’re about Mission, Spirit, and Community. And community means people — and people means differences. We extend a special welcome to those who may wonder whether “everyone is welcome” really applies to them. We believe that God does love you, that you are a child of God, and you are welcome here as part of our community!
You are welcome:
If you know what you believe … or aren’t sure what to believe … If you’ve had wonderful past church experiences … or not … No matter where you find yourself on the political spectrum … or the economic one … Whether you are single, married, widowed, separated, or divorced … Whether you are lesbian, gay, transgender, or straight … If you have a physical disability, or mental illness, or struggle with addictions … or none of these… If you’ve ever spent time in prison, or jail, or a detention center (we are part of prison ministry) … No matter how you look — whether you have tattoos, piercings, plugs … or aren’t really into these kind of things ...
… You are welcome here
We believe in a Living God; that Jesus still has something to say to the world; that the Spirit moves in us and through us.
We value the love of God, the example of Jesus, and the call of the Spirit to help make the world a better place. We value prayer, empowerment through the grace of God, living discipleship, inclusiveness in the kingdom, authentic relationships, the goodness of God, release of spiritual gifts, creativity and the arts, team leadership, and the reality that God is alive in the world.
Get ready for SOCKTOBER!
We are collecting socks for local homeless shelters this October. Our goal is 100 pairs of socks. Please drop off new, unused socks at the church. In October, we will also put drop-off boxes around Howard County. Stay tuned for locations!!!
