No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey...
you’re welcome here!

We invite you to worship with our faith community as we strive to discover God's direction for our lives. We encourage searching minds and spirits as we celebrate together our faith in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, through the guidance of the Holy Scriptures. Emphasizing individual choice and conviction, members follow the Word of God according to the dictates of their own consciences.

CYNTHIA at center with daughter Jessica at left and Susan J. at right

As many in our church family are aware, our amazing Cynthia Maldonado has been seeking a kidney for a very long time. In fact, it will be four years in July. Being way down on the list to receive a kidney, she has endured many health challenges over the last years and has to sit through dialysis three times a week for four hours at a time.

If you know Cynthia well, you know that this is a big step she's taking to put this out here and let us know she'd like help in finding a new kidney.

The need for kidneys in the United States is great and the number of people willing to donate a kidney whether before or after their deaths is small. Currently, the estimated time to receive a cadaver kidney is eight years, and Cynthia is only half way there. Please prayerfully consider whether you are being called to consider donating a kidney for Cynthia to help give her a far better quality and quantity of LIFE.

Children’s Offering
Project For 2016

All children (and adults, for that matter) are invited to SHARE YOUR PENNIES again this year.  There was so much excitement generated by the project in 2016 that we have decided to keep it going for 2017.  The International Fellowship of the Least Coin is a worldwide ecumenical movement of prayer for peace and reconciliation.  Each time you spend time in prayer, particularly for those who are victims of jealousy, hatred, violence, and injustice to the family, community, nation, and the world, you are invited to put a penny in the jar which you’ll find at our Visitor’s Center during the week or up front on our communion table each Sunday.

The International Fellowship of the Least Coin is a worldwide ecumenical movement of prayer for peace and reconciliation.  Those participating are asked to pray for all victims of any injustice, be it in a family, a community, a nation, or the world. 

Last year we started collecting pennies for this Fellowship during the children’s time in our Sunday service.  The pennies were put into a jar Pastor Donald found which we filled THREE times.  This represents over 20,000 prayers for peace and reconciliation.  We are a praying church and we believe in that power, be it for our own needs or for those who are in need somewhere in the world.  So in 2017 let’s keep praying and bringing pennies.   Thank you!
