About Us

As disciples of Christ, we offer a path to hope, inclusion and purpose for a community in need of healing care, community engagement, faith formation and compassionate love.

Our Values


Live faith seriously with worship, study and action.

Variety of Perspective

The DNA formed during the union of the North and South churches leads to honoring spaces of education, growth, and connection with the diversity of God’s creation. (theology, politics, economics, identity, accessibility)

Village and Community

All people are beloved of God, made in God’s image and worth. Care extends with prayer, support, trust, acceptance, and hospitality.

Spiritual Engagement

Find meaning through a medium that invites many talents, expressions of faith, and a place of connection and growth including music, play, and fellowship.

The church is accessible through the doors off the parking lot (corner of Pine/E. 3rd Streets).  There are three spaces, one for a van, in the parking lot for those with approved vehicle displays. There are two additional reserved spaces on College Street (in front of the church). A lower ramp gives access to the building from the parking lot. The lower level of the church is completely accessible except for the area around the choir/communion table.
