Holy Envy: What A Christian Minister Loves About Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam

Sermon Series with Dr. Jim Keck

In this three part sermon series, Dr. Jim Keck takes delight in the sheer variety of religions and shows how faithful Christians can learn some valuable lessons from other wisdom traditions. Join us for part 3, held Jan. 21-22, at the 5:30pm, 9:00am, 10:30am, and 11:59am services.

ALL are Needed

Sunday 9:30am, Kloefkorn Elementary School (6601 Glassridge Dr)

Have you ever thought about Church like a football team? Some are really gifted and have a lot to offer, but someone like me is a bench warmer. I’ll show up, but I’m not really necessary. Well, Paul the apostle disagrees! What if God has designed the communal body of Christ in such a way that each person's presence and gifts are needed for God’s dream for creation to be realized?

Rev. Dr. Jim Keck

Open Minded

Our worship services have a quality that echoes through the ages and yet, speaks to the present and points to the future. 


We believe God is a spirit of love that can be felt and known by each one of us.


Rather than resisting change or innovation, we eagerly experiment with new ways of being faithful and new understandings


We celebrate the differences among us such as sexual orientation, ethnicity, class, mental abilities, physical capabilities, personalities, and backgrounds.
