Our Mission Statement

We are a family of diverse individuals committed to love and acceptance and called by God to be open to many points of view.

We seek to be an extended family for all people, regardless of age, race, ethnic origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic situation, marital status, physical or mental ability.

We offer support, fellowship, and worship, equipping those who hunger for wholeness to live and love courageously as disciples of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We believe our diversity is a blessing which strengthens persons to serve, and commit ourselves to Christian service in our community and in the life of the larger church.

A Letter from Pastor Steve Poteete-Marshall

Dear Friends,
As we witness the turmoil around us and the various responses in protest of the recent actions that resulted in the death of George Floyd, Ahumaud Arbery and others, I want to counsel us to act in ways that are responsible and are in accordance to COVID-19 safe practices guidelines. 

I call us to rigorous self-examination and repentance for our actions that come from hate and prejudice, and not from treasuring each other as the blessed children of God. And although it might be tempting to go out and partake in demonstrations and marches, let me say that there alternate ways to make a difference for justice. 

Second, let us give thanks for the wonderful diversity that is creation, it is wonderful to have persons who are from different cultures, speak different languages and who have different skin color than our own.

Thirdly, ask God for guidance so you will know how to act. The task may feel overwhelming, to change the world so no one lives in fear, but God only calls us to do one thing, the thing we can do, not all the things we cannot do.
From what I understand you can peacefully protest in ways that are even more effective than marching. Sending a donation to an organization that works with those who are poor and marginalized, writing letters in support or in opposition to what our elected officials are saying and doing, attending a meeting online with others who are organizing, sending support to our first responders who are often in the middle of the conflicts.

Each of us can find one way to make a difference as we love our neighbors. For me, I work with those living with HIV/AIDS, many who live on the margins, who are stigmatized and live in neighborhoods that are not always a safe haven for them. For me, this is how I share my love with others especially during times of crisis.  I see the results of this work when I go to Strength for Journey camp each year, and as I exchange emails and texts with campers during the year.

There are plenty of ways we can make a difference in the lives of those who are victims of injustice, ways that can help turn the tide of racism and prejudice.
