About Us

Reaching Out to Grow God's Community

We are a community of people who have come together to serve God the way that Jesus did- by working to make God’s vision of a peaceful, just and inclusive world a reality.  We believe that God is still speaking in ways that are grounded in ancient Christian understandings but which are fresh expressions of the Divine presence in contemporary life.
