An Invitation to Community
As God has welcomed us, we welcome you.

meets the mystery of God’s unifying Spirit
and we become the Body of Christ.

Worship is a time for celebration and contemplation as a community of Christian faith. Through music and prayer, through silence and the spoken word, through movement and color, through sharing Communion at the table of Christ, we remember and celebrate that we belong to God and to each other as the Body of Christ.
