Kids on Palm SundayWe are a new faith community of the Presbyterian Church (USA), but you don’t even need to know how to spell that to be welcome.

We believe there is too much anger and division in our country and the world, so we do our best to “Make peace, not judgments.”

Our backgrounds are moderate, conservative and liberal. AND we are united by the definition that God is love and Christ Jesus welcomes ALL to the table!

Help grow a new church where we treat EVERY human being equally as a fellow child of God.

Here’s a background article published by our denomination:
