As disciples of Jesus, we seek to embody Christ’s extravagant love, and share this love with everyone regardless of race, gender identity, income, age, orientation, or disability. Our building is wheelchair accessible, we provide assisted listening devices, and produce large-print bulletins for our members and guests with diminished vision. We fly a rainbow flag near our doors to boldly attract the attention of passers-by who see that a Christian church is declaring its welcome to LGBT persons.
We are proud of our history on the forefront of progressive change whether it be marching on the Mall with Martin Luther King, Jr., making a commitment to reduce homelessness and hunger around us, or becoming an Open and Affirming church.
