What We're About

We are a people of QUILTS. In fact, our building is filled with quilts that reflect:


Quilts represent warmth of body and soul that people find here in ministries of PRAYER and PASTORAL CARE. They also call us to the nurture of Christian Education experienced in our Ministries for CHILDREN and YOUTH and our vital ADULT EDUCATION programs.


Just as every quilt is graced by many fabrics and patterns, images and stitches, our church truly welcomes old and young, those in large families and those who are single, those who are grounded in traditional faith and those who push the edges of seeking. Our WORSHIP, ministries for WOMEN & MEN, FELLOWSHIP events and widening connections seek to reach and include everyone!


Quilts remind us of the most basic of needs - for warmth and shelter. They reflect our generous commitments to supporting ministries that provide CLEAN WATER and FOOD for those in our community and those throughout the world who are in need. Our CARING Ministry offers practical support for members & friends.
