Our Social Values

We believe in hope and possibility.  We believe our world is both broken and beautiful.  We believe our calling is to help build the Beloved Community, where there is justice and equity for all people and all places beyond the borders that seek to divide us.

We are a Welcoming Congregation – affirming and celebrating the presence of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and all people regardless of sexual identity or sexual orientation.  Our congregation is a strong advocate for LGBTQI equality in our church and in society.
