We welcome persons of every ethnicity, race, and orientation to worship, serve, and love God, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We embrace the following missions: 1. To offer God's word, prayer, the sacraments, and discipleship; 2. To offer outreach, education, fellowship, and music; 3. To offer sanctuary to anyone seeking spirituality and hope; 4. To offer hospitality to community groups and the arts; 5. To care for the gifts we have been given through our Reformed Church, including our historic sanctuary and building.
