Why would I choose to become a Member?
Our active and diverse membership comes from many walks of life. We may have different spiritual backgrounds and different reasons for joining, yet we all find common ground and enjoy the fellowship within our church community, and have a desire to support a liberal religious voice in our community at large. We believe that each person has unique abilities to share with our congregation and offers support in their own unique way.
