vision is to keep expanding welcome, liberating those who are forced to
live in the margins, dismantling barriers and building bridges until
all of God's beloved have equity. Our mission is to help every body to understand that they are fully known and fully loved by God, and to strive to we love one another more completely.Every body is beloved. You have a place here.
