A peace & justice church
Ripples are created by those courageous enough to leap into the water, believing even
the smallest act done with great love can have an impact on our world for generations to come.
Who We are
Located in the heart of the Queen City, our church is rooted in the Christian Anabaptist principles of peacemaking, community, and following the way of Jesus in life. We hold as central to our faith the commandment that Jesus taught as a summary of all the great teachings — that we love God with all our strength, mind and spirit; and that we love our neighbors as ourselves.
all are welcome
We are a Christ-centered, welcoming, and inclusive church community committed to peace and justice.
We acknowledge and affirm the image of God in persons of every race, ability, class, gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation. We celebrate an open communion in which all who seek a closer journey with God are welcome to participate.
Everyone is invited to join in the full life of the congregation.
our Current MESSAGE Series
(NOT) BUSINESS AS USUAL
To set up the sermon on the mount, we must first understand the world Jesus came into, the personhood of Jesus, and the social order during his time on earth. We will explore how his teaching contrasted with conventional wisdom, and why that got him killed. We will also see what Jesus calls “The Reign of God” (sometimes said The Kingdom of God) both arriving NOW and NOT YET, with Jesus giving us sneak previews of the world to come and inviting us to help inch the world closer to what God had in mind for it.
