We worship God in Christ Jesus faithfully, engage in Bible study and prayerful contemplation, serve joyfully, and seek justice passionately, with the Holy Spirit as our guide.

We are an Open and Affirming Church: We respect the worth and dignity of all persons who come into our church family regardless of their race, age, gender, nationality, marital standing, economic status, mental or physical challenges, or sexual orientation. We promise to support one another in our personal struggles, to understand and accept differences in one another, and pray to strengthen our love and acceptance.

With Children:  Children will hear the Children's Sermon with Kay Lautzenheiser then attend church School.  
The Word:
John 15:26-27  Jesus assures us an "Advocate" will be sent from God to witness to Jesus' works once he is gone.  
Acts 2:1-21
finds the disciples in the crowd on when suddenly a Spirit descends and everyone can understand each other!  Truly a miracle...
Our Message: "Remembering"  From Jesus to that astounding moment of Pentecost, from those who first settled here to those who carried on the good work of the church; to those who have served and continue to serve God and country - we remember because the Spirit works and lives in us.
