What if I just want to come for this one service, nothing more? What if I am not religious?
That’s fine. We have a saying in our church: No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. Whether you are here for one time, or a lifetime, you are welcome, respected and appreciated. If you have no particular faith tradition or religious beliefs but want to feel the hope and love of Christmas, that’s great too. We welcome all people of goodwill with a diversity of perspectives. Individual conscience is valued.
