Welcome

If you are alienated or upset, we welcome you lovingly.

If you are in need of forgiveness, Jesus forgives you completely--with unconditional love.

If you have been hurt by the Church, we are truly sorry.

If you are angry, Jesus offers you peace.

If life has become burdensome, we are here to support you.

We are happy you are here and want you to stay.

May God bless you.  Your friend and Pastor,

Father C.J.
