We are so glad you are here!
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight, filthy rich, or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to crying newborns, those who are skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds. Or more than a few :-) You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more religious than the Pope, more Methodist than Wesley, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s baptism.
We welcome soccer moms, Greenwave dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food lovers, squids, and jarheads. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.
We welcome you if you’re having problems, if you’re down in the dumps, if you are thrilled just to be alive, or in need of a prayer. Whether you had church shoved down your throat as a kid, if church was the place you felt most loved in the world, or if you don’t like “organized religion”.
We’ve been there too.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts, cynics… and you!
