I am about to do a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:19

Welcoming You Home!

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich,black and proud, y no habla Ingles.

Welcome to those who are new-borns, poor as dirt, skinny as a rail, got a hitch in yer giddy-up, or can't carry a tune in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Lutheran than Luther, or more Catholic than the Pope, or haven’t been in church since last century.


C'mon along to all soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters, and people who stay up too late at night. If you’re having problems, or you’re down in the dumps, or you don’t like “organized religion,” we’ve been there too. If you blew all your offering money at Black Hawk, you’re welcome here.


We offer a special welcome to those who could lose a few pounds, think the earth is flat, work too hard, or came because grandma’s in town and wanted to go to church. This is your place if you could use a prayer right now, are three-times divorced, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost in traffic and just needed directions. We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!
