No Matter Who You Are Or Where You Are On Life’s Journey, What does What does this mean? Who are we? Read on and laugh with us as we answer your questions. And then we hope to see you any Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
All are welcome here! But, we extend a warm welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, lesbian, transgender, Filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail, or could afford to lose a few pounds. We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor who can’t carry a tune in a bucket. You’re even welcome here if you are “just browsing”, just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism. We extend an excited welcome to those over 60 who have not grown up yet as well as teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or are still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or are down in the dumps, or even if you don’t like “organized religion”. We also have been there. We endorse all people but we make a point not to promote any particular politician. If you need a church that does promote politics or a minister who screams and yells from the pulpit about how everybody who doesn’t believe as he (or she) believes is going to hell – well, you’re probably not going to like this church. Here, you can be Republican, Democrat, Independent, heck, even a socialist. You’ll understand that we’re sort of struck with Jesus and, especially, his teachings. The way we figure it – if we follow his teachings the world will be a happier and healthier place for everybody. Happier and healthier too, for those not interested in religion, not even ours. If you blew all your offering money last night at the casino, tough luck for us. You’re still welcome here. We offer an extravagant welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here simply because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We offer a caring welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, or who had religion shoved down their throat as a kid or just got lost with in-town traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts… in short, We Welcome You!
