A Changing Church for Changing Times

We describe our congregation as a changing church for changing times.  We celebrate our multicultural, multi-generational Church family.

Our church family includes people from Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Kenya, Jamaica, Trinidad, St. Vincent Island, Romania, Pakistan, and Hungary,

as well as some who grew up in the Crescentville neighborhood and others who are new to the area.

Please know you are welcome to be a part of the change! We invite you to join with us as we seek God’s leading us to be a welcoming place in our community.
