We are in the process of hiring an Interim Minister while we conduct a national search for our next Senior Minister.  Currently our pulpit is being filled by guests and we are enjoying the varying styles being presented each week.    We welcome all to come and be with us as God takes us on this new and exciting journey in the life of our congregation.  We continue to serve a congregation that is diverse and welcoming to all who enter.  We promise to continue our vision to listen, to love and to restore hope and community to all God’s children.
