We are a united parish bringing together two historic, Protestant denominations (United Church of Christ and United Methodist Church) and people of all ages, backgrounds, persuasions and orientations, in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ. We are on a discipleship journey, creating an open, inclusive, community center growing spiritual character and religious integrity.
We are a community in the true sense of the word: leaning on one another, growing together, stretching each other and finding comfort in one another. While we have a long, rich history (almost 300 years!), we are actively looking to the future and discerning God's word for tomorrow.

Our Cookbook has received very positive feedback from those who have purchased it.
