It is with a sad heart that we are announcing that out of an abundance of caution for those who would be conducting services on Sunday, we will be canceling services for this Sunday, 1-2-22, only. We had hoped to have services virtually this Sunday, but unfortunately that won’t be possible.
God willing, services will resume virtually on Sunday, January 9, 2022.
Our Services will be virtual only for the next 6 weeks.

An affirming, safe and inclusive community, offering relevant teaching/preaching, warm hospitality, and selfless service to all humankind.


Holy Communion will be announced at a later time.
