Share the journey together with one another as we connect with God, the "ground of our being." Explore the meaning of the Bible and Christian spiritual practices, relevant to our lives in the 21st century. Discover. Learn. Grow.
Meet interesting people on a spiritual path, growing to better understand and live out meaning and purpose of our lives in God, as known through Jesus Christ. Become friends with others who are: open, non-judgmental, loving, kind and joyful - who honor women as well as men and believe in equality and justice for all people. It is our covenental commitments, not doctrines or creeds that bind us together. Our community is non-hierarchal.
As we commune with God and grow to find our true being in Christ, we also reach out to others in convivial enjoyment with conversations, friendships, shared mission and an appreciation for music and the arts.
Our goal is to be transformed and to transform. As the Spirit of God works in us we are also changed by one another. We are actively engaged in finding wholeness, peace and justice in our community and in our world.

Our meeting place was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The unique design represents a tent as a symbol that life is transitory and faith is a journey.
We believe in God's continuing testament. We're committed to hear God's ancient story anew and afresh in our lives and in the world today and try hard to remain attentive to God's creative movement in the world.
