As we know Jesus Christ would, we embrace a wide range of people. We represent a variety of races, abilities, viewpoints and orientations. We welcome people of all faith traditions here. We are single, divorced, married, widowed, gay, lesbian, straight, in traditional and non-traditional families, young and old, some with wealth, some without - and nearly all knowing we are better off for having one another.
If you already are a member of our community, or once were, or perhaps might like to be, please use this web site to keep in touch. Please contact us to let us know how to reach you.
