The church is not a society of people united by their affinities but the Body of Christ, in which all share a common life, completing one another by their differences.
— C.S. Lewis

You are safe here.

You’ll smell the coffee as soon as you walk through our blue doors.

You’ll notice right away that we are the friendliest bunch in town, and will see how joyfully we love our God, one other, and now you.

No matter how many triumphs or struggles, joys or disappointments you’ve faced, no matter how much or how little you feel The Divine in your life, you are safe here.


Sundays at 11 AM

The Path: Finding Meaning in Everyday Life.

Compartmentalization is a comforting vice. We employ it to guard ourselves, and for good reason.

Don't think about work at home. Don't think about home at work. Don't think about eating ice cream at the gym. Don't think about the gym whilst eating ice cream.

Then, we come to the compartment of belief and all the rules change. Faith was never meant to be a compartment. It is a principle that affects every area of our lives.

We look forward to seeing you during this series as we look at how to live a kind of faith that extends beyond Sunday mornings.
