We are a place rooted in Worship, formation and mission. We care about Biblical literacy, a commitment to prayer, and a missional presence in our community. We fall on the conservative end of a generally liberal denomination, but our aim is not to be a parish of "culture warriors," but to embody what we call "Joyful Orthodoxy." We value strong scripturally anchored preaching, relational discipleship, lives rooted in worship and prayer, and a joyful community. We have a lot of fun together, and our church is growing significantly right now.
