Ever-Expanding Table

We believe that absolutely everyone is welcome at the table of God’s grace. Whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, black or white, Asian or Hispanic, rich or poor, LGBTQIA or straight, a hunter or a vegan, you are welcome here. We love pulling up more seats around God’s ever-expanding table.
