Open & Affirming

Compassionate Action

In our effort to be faithful to our understanding of the implications of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we affirm that God loves all humankind—people of all genders, ages, races, ethnic origins, religious backgrounds, physical and mental abilities and sexual orientations.  We seek to be inclusive, accepting all who would join in a pilgrimage of faith with us as we seek the meaning of mercy, justice and compassion in living our lives in this place and at this time.

Great Salt Lake

Creation Justice

NAture Nurture

As stewards we have a responsibility to be caretakers of Creation. Getting out into nature, really experiencing it firsthand (not just through books, movies, or our kitchen windows) develops an appreciation that leads to taking action to protect it. This ministry team will offer field trip opportunities to enjoy nature in the mountains, along the rivers, and in the wetlands, and put you in touch with service opportunities.

Community & Compassionate Action

Get Involved

Compassionate Action helps us be the hands that extend God’s extravagant welcome in our world.  Compassionate Action begins with a desire to see as God sees – to see our interconnected nature that comes from all creation as equally sacred unique reflections of God’s image.

Compassionate Action extends God’s unconditional welcome through volunteer service and financial support that helps ensure basic needs are met and dignity upheld.

No matter who you are or where
you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

Sunday Reflections

Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost"Everyone Gets a Medal!" — Rev. Brent Gundlah When they were six years old, our daughters, for reasons that remain shrouded in mystery to this day, decided they wanted to play soccer. It was the one and only time they ventured into...

Sunday, September 17, 2023

"Seventy Times Seven" Rev. Brent Gundlah "Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors." We’ve all read and said and heard these words countless times both here in church and elsewhere. But let's be honest: How often do we really stop and think about what they mean?...

Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost “Getting Together” — Rev. Brent Gundlah Jesus may have given Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven, but you all gave me the keys to this church, and that’s pretty good too. At a purely functional level, it makes sense for me to have...

Fourteenth Sunday after PentecostThe Things We Must Do — Rev. Brent Gundlah One thing that became very clear during the recent pandemic is that people really don’t like being told what to do. I mean, how many times over those three years did we hear about all of the...

Thirteenth Sunday after PentecostRev. Brent Gundlah If you ever happen to find yourself in Rome with a few hours to kill, head over to St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican; if you can’t get there in person, that’s fine because you can actually take a virtual tour of it...

Twelfth Sunday after PentecostRegrets — Rev. Brent Gundlah When people come to my office for the first time, the tend ask me about the blue post-it note taped to the door above the inside handle that says “KEYS?” in capital letters. It’s there to remind me to take my...

Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost"A Sill, Small Voice" — Rev. Brent Gundlah Behind my elementary school there was a tiny stream that separated the athletic field from the woods just beyond it. It was only about six feet wide and six inches deep — not significant enough...

Sunday, August 6, 2023

Tenth Sunday after Pentecost Rev. Brent Gundlah Getting people with different perspectives to come together and agree on anything has never been an easy thing to do. This seems especially true these days, when every single issue that comes up results in us running to...

Sunday, July 23, 2023

Eighth Sunday after Pentecost "Sowing Weeds" Rev. Brent Gundlah Well, it’s another day down on the farm with Jesus as our reading from Matthew again uses agricultural imagery to explain what God’s reign is like. In today’s parable, Jesus turns his attention to the...

Sunday, July 16, 2023

Seveth Sunday after Pentecost “Sowing Seeds” — Rev. Brent Gundlah Once upon a time, I lived and served a church in a rural community in America’s “Heartland” — a place where agriculture anchors the local economy and where people work hard to raise all sorts of things....

Core Values

We courageously embrace innovation and open minded conversation, where inclusion is expected and people of all walks of life are welcomed and encouraged to seek God and progress on their own spiritual journeys.
