Frequently Asked Questions

We are a church that blends the beauty and practices of various traditions. Our services are shaped by the ancient liturgies, yet we worship in ways that are both ancient and contemporary. We are Table Centered, open to the gifts of the Spirit, and place a high value on Scripture.
Liturgy is the work of God through “the work of the people” and our services involve a lot of congregants who participate in various ways, from playing or singing on the worship team, to greeting, to reading scripture or leading us in the Creed, to the A/V technicians – there are a lot of ways to get involved.  Our worship service is highly participatory.  We sing and read together with lyrics and text projected on a large screen at the front of the Sanctuary.  We pass the peace of Christ to each other.  We recite the Lord’s Prayer and the creeds together.  We believe giving of offerings is an act of worship and each week we offer a chance for people to engage in worship through giving.
The teaching of the Scripture is Biblically-based, rooted in the church calendar, and has real application to our daily life as we seek to faithfully follow Jesus.  We are sacramental in that every part of our worship service is leading us to the Lord’s table and we end each worship service by coming forward to the Lord’s table for to receive the Eucharist.  Our table is open to all who desire to follow Christ.

We want you to be yourself, so please dress as you prefer.

​We are a diverse and varied group of believers. We are made up of charismatics and social-justice seekers; those certain of their faith, those who are deconstructing, and those who doubt.  We believe that, despite our differences, all things hold together and find unity in Jesus Christ.  Our hope is that we provide both a safe space for you to continue your journey of faith and a spiritual home with people that will walk alongside you.

Children bring joy and energy to our church family, and we love it!  For more information on specifics, click here.
