If you've been with us for a while—or it's love at first sight—and you wonder whether formal membership is right for you, this page offers an invitation, links to further resources on membership, and a brief description of how to apply.

We don't have a theological litmus test for membership and we don't baptize. Instead, we seek to be clear that membership is right for both you and us.

And welcome!

We seek to be a welcoming community to all people regardless of their race or ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, or social situation, and we invite you to worship with us and to participate in our community life, whether you are members or not.

Discover the Benefits of Membership:

Spiritual Home: Membership fosters a sense of wholeness and belonging.

Community: We seek to become members of one another in a fellowship of the Spirit.

Spiritual Nurture: We seek to support each other in the life of the spirit with genuine care for each other.

Living in the World: We try to provide a spiritual foundation for your efforts toward right living, raising a family, and mending the world we live in.

Reality Check: We're not perfect, of course. But we constantly strive to become more loving, more compassionate, and more welcoming to all.

Joy: Meanwhile, we have a lot of fun, we laugh a lot, and we know real joy in each other's presence.
