Welcome to our website!
We are "both-and" people in an "either-or" world.
We trust that we (and all people) are both beloved by God just as we are and also continually falling short of God's intentions for us -- works in progress.
Our worship tends to be both traditional and also innovative.
The worldview that shapes our teaching and preaching is both rooted in Lutheran grace-centered theology and also informed by other faith traditions and by scientific, historical, cultural, etc. inquiry.
Our SUMMER Sunday worship
(June 1 -- August 31)
begins at 9:30 am.
(Except our June 30 Ecumenical Worship in Sayre Park, which begins at 10:00 am.)
Here's the welcome statement we print in our weekly worship bulletin:
In God’s name, we welcome atheists, cynics, doubters, seekers, and believers of all stripes; gays and straights; conservatives, progressives, and independents; wealthy and poor; individuals and every sort of family; scoundrels, rascals, jerks, self-righteous, and sinners of all types; those who are broken, lost, and hopeless. ALL are welcome, as we are, in order that ALL may be transformed by God in Christ.
We warmly invite you to join us for worship or any of our other events:
Come as you are -- we'll save you a seat.
