We offer an open space where those of divergent religious backgrounds can find a home and a church community. The space we offer seeks to include those who have a feel for tradition and are comfortable with it, as well as those who feel marginal to tradition and may even be uncomfortable with it. We offer a space where those who are religiously uncertain need not feel apologetic, where those who have been “put off” by their experience of religion in the past but who are still on a pilgrimage of faith can pursue their journey, where those who still want to wrestle with the biblical story can do so without being told exactly what they must make of it, where the answers sought don’t crowd out the mystery felt, where the search is for values that connect their hearts to the universe and their deeds to the earth.
We invite you to learn more about our shared values and covenants.
Our name more than hints at our identity. We are Congregationalists – that is to say, as a congregation we govern ourselves. We call our clergy, set our own budget and determine all major issues affecting our corporate life. In essence, we bear the responsibility for ourselves as a Church.
What is true for us as a congregation is also true for us as individuals. Each of us is free to bear the responsibility for our own faith. We are united by covenant rather than creed. We agree to join in a journey of faith. This journey does not require that we all be at the same place, nor that we all think the same things, but rather that we desire to find our way before God, individually and collectively. We covenant with each other to be neighbors to our neighbors, and to be a community of grace to each other and to the world.
