Their welcome statement reads:
“We Welcome All. God DELIGHTS in the beautiful diversity of humankind and UNITES us through the love, grace, and forgiveness of Jesus. We CELEBRATE God’s creation in all its forms and the inherent worth, dignity and giftedness of people of all abilities, ages, cultures, classes, races, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions.
We Build Community. The Holy Spirit EMPOWERS us to be a community of disciples COMMITTED to individual and communal practices of listening, learning, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Together, we work for the restoration of relationships, pursue racial equity, and affirm those who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination.
We Serve our Neighbor. Jesus GUIDES us in ways of nonviolence, healing, and peacemaking. We PROCLAIM God’s relentless, widening welcome and deepening love for all. We INVITE you to join us as we walk with Jesus toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.
ALL are welcome here. ALL are loved here.“
