No gatherings this long weekend

The long weekend is almost upon us. What are you up to?

There are no big group gatherings this Sunday either in person or on zoom. This pause allows our community the freedom to explore, live, breathe, and have time with family and friends, however you choose to do that.

LGBTQ+ Resources
Keep popping back here as this is an ever evolving list of resources

On Sunday, October 3, 2021 we marked our churches decision to be an inclusive, welcoming and affirming community of people who are making it our business to live out our faith in love.

Stacey Chomiak is an LGBTQ Christian Speaker, artist, author and art director and was our guest speaker and we loved hearing her story.

If you were not able to join us that week, here's a recording of the gathering. It was wonderful. You can watch on Vimeo or find that episode by date on our podcast.
