About Us

 The altar

The altar

           We are a small dynamic Christian community striving to reflect Jesus Christ’s love in word and action.  For us, Christ in his love and teaching, reveals God to us, and is our savior from the forces of death and destruction in the world, who by his presence in our lives, he infuses our suffering with joy, and personifies God’s love, compassion, understanding, caring, and hope.

            Our worship is a reflection of what we believe.  As we pray and worship together, we feel Christ’s presence and his peace.  This effects the way we live and prepares us for the coming week, providing a spiritual foundation for our lives in the world.

            Our worship also reflects the changeless nature of God’s revelation to us in Christ in an ever changing world, teaching us truths and values that are timeless.  It does this because, while reflecting certain modern trends in such things as music and addressing issues in the contemporary world, our catholic service can be traced back 2000 years to the early church and is universally done throughout the world, connecting us to other Christians throughout the ages and across all cultures.      

Our church is open to everyone and is a non-threatening place of comfort and love when someone is in need. There are never any obligations. It is a free offering of God.
