Why Jesus? One pastor has said, "knowing Jesus makes me a better person...a better friend, a better citizen, a better employee, a better wife/girlfriend, a better husband/boyfriend" and so on. Becoming a better person happens as we grow in understanding and practice, through study, serving others, and prayer and meditation. We understand salvation not as a one-time event ushering us to a heavenly will-call window. We understand it as an opportunity everyday to be transformed. How we live life and live it with others is important here and now.
Why church? Church is where we come to hear and experience God's good news through a message, a hymn, or another person. Church is where people rub off on us and us on them. Church is where we can discover and use God's gifts. Church is where God works through the efforts of many to turn problems into opportunities. Church is where you can heal. Church is where someone will pray for you.
Why this congregation? What's unique about it? We do think you'll experience a warm and open welcome. We love traditional worship but don't think you'll find us stiff or stuffy. On Sundays at 10:00 a.m. and on weeknights, you'll find some interesting study opportunities for adults, college students and other young adults, and children. We offer a great opportunity to reach out to the homeless and working poor and to work with children in our downtown schools. We also offer a great location, great space, and we enjoy hosting musical and other events here.
