We are a gathering of Christians from varying backgrounds and traditions. We aren't a big church and we like that. Our smaller size allows us to be closer to people and to know each other more deeply. Our children (and we have a lot) have the benefit of growing up around older folks who serve as surrogate grandparents, aunts, and uncles. That multi-generational dynamic is a great thing in our eyes. We don't pretend to have all the answers but we all strive to follow the One who does. We study scripture so that we can know God better. When we begin to know Him better, we appreciate the fact that we are all lost without Jesus. Because of Jesus, we know we are adopted sons and daughters of our Creator, and that is the reason we are so happy!
