“Love everybody” starts in our own community.

 We believe a healthy community, like a healthy ecosystem, needs diversity. We like and respect each other, even when we disagree about how to live out our faith. And once we dive beneath the surface, we find that the things that bring us together are far greater and more important than those that divide us. The deeper we go, the more we find what unites us. Our Connect Groups & Events are designed to help us get to know and go deeper with one another.
