We are a family of progressive Christian faith,
loving and serving with courage.
Progressive Christianity is a form of Christianity that is characterized by a willingness to question tradition,
acceptance of human diversity, a strong emphasis
on social justice and care for the poor and the oppressed,
and environmental stewardship of the Earth.
Our inclusivity statement:
"We are a diverse community of faith that gathers inclusively and celebrates the person God is creating each of us to be. Connected by our love of God and our commitment to demonstrate Christ’s love through action, we welcome individuals of all races, nationalities, family structures, economic situations, sexual orientations, gender identities, and theological backgrounds.
We respect and honor our differences!"
At Federated ALL means ALL.
We are an open and affirming congregation. We have an altar for all and welcome all of God's children to our family of faith.
As part of the United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) we are members of each denominational LGBTQ affirming organization. Both these organizations work to celebrate and create more space in the church for LGBTQ persons.
As a community of faith we are characterized strongly by our values.
We claim a diversity of beliefs. We continue to discover, develop, and nurture our beliefs
using scripture, tradition, individual and collective experience, as well as reason. We believe…
God is love.
Jesus Christ translates God’s love through teaching, compassion, sacrifice,
and life example.
Holy Spirit brings God’s transformational presence to us and to the world.
Scripture embodies a human understanding of God’s grace and ongoing relationship with us and all of creation.
