Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors
If you are searching for someone to believe in and somewhere to call home, you're not alone. Join with others to experience following the way of Christ in this faith community.
We invite you to Sunday worship at 9:30 and 11:00am. Sunday School for all ages is at 9:30. There is a Nursery available during both services and Children's Church for ages 3-7 during the 11:00 service.

“This variety of religious practice is the great spiritual adventure of our time.”
The words above come from John Dunne’s comment on religious pluralism. How do you relate to people with different religious beliefs? What this “great spiritual adventure” means to me is that Christians learn new ways of relating to other Christians and other religions. We are greatly helped by Jesus’ metaphor that we are the “salt of the earth.”
In our time dietitians and medical professionals tell us the overuse of salt contributes to high blood pressure and “hardening of the arteries”. These kinds of adverse health conditions are closely related to “please pass the salt”.
In our time Jesus’ words sound strange, as they often do, until we set the context. Jesus did not mean we are ambulatory blocks of salt. Rather, in the context of first century Palestine, salt was difficult to procure, and highly prized for its flavor and preservation qualities. Jesus often uses everyday things like “salt” and “light” to speak of spiritual things.
On the first floor of the church a picture like the one above hangs close to the door. In the context of those whose lives have lost flavor, no matter their religious practice, you may be for them salt or light. How will you be “salt” in your spiritual adventure today?
