God’s story is always love.
Jesus was always welcoming, gathering, feeding everybody.
And then he sent them to heal the world.
This is the Great Commission we all share in.

We’re part of this story.  Jesus calls us to a bigger table where everyone belongs.
We’re an open community where we really try to care for each other and where it is safe to search for God.
We are all different, all unique and we join together, each bringing our gifts to create beloved community.
