This week in worship:


Bart Simpson and Colossians

Bart Simpson is the rebellious anti-hero who sometimes rises to the moral occasion - and sometimes not. Like most of us, one supposes. This week, Dr. Keck will use a classic scene of Bart Simpson to unpack the importance of Colossians in avoiding becoming cartoonish.

Saturday 5:30pm
Sunday 9:00am | 10:30am | 11:59am | 20th & D St.


Gratitude & U-Turns

Some habits of the heart are automatic and instinctual. When loved ones suffer, compassion often comes without effort. But other habits of the heart need to be nurtured and grown. Gratitude is an essential heart habit to the Christian faith, but one that isn’t as automatic as you might think. This Sunday at FP-East & 1:30pm, Pastor Patrick will explore cultivate lives filled with the spirit of true thankfulness.

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.
