Welcome!

AN EXTRAVAGANT WELCOME

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHERE YOU ARE ON LIFE’S JOURNEY, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE”

 

We extend a special welcome and invitation to all God’s children to the table of God’s abundant blessing: to those who are single, married, divorced, persons of every gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those with kids of all ages, to those who may be skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just curious”, or if you just got out of jail. We don’t care if you haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or if you’re down in the dumps, or if you don’t like “organized religion”. We’ve been there too.

We offer a special welcome to those who work too hard or don’t work; who can’t spell, read or write. We welcome the well-educated. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We offer a special welcome to those who are looking for and desiring community, to those who could use a prayer right now, or had religion shoved down your throat as a kid and have just walked away from it all. We welcome seekers and doubters, and those who have more questions than answers; those with bleeding hearts … and you!
