No matter who you are, where you come from, what you’ve done, who you love, or what you believe or don’t believe…you are welcome here.
Just as Jesus welcomed everyone to his table during his earthly ministry, so we carry on this tradition of spiritual generosity in our own parish. Everyone is welcome to attend, receive communion, and participate in all levels of membership, service, and leadership, regardless of one’s faith tradition (or lack of same), racial or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, legal status, criminal record, or even species (animal companions attend our services regularly).
Many of us at Grace North Church have known how painful it can be to be rejected by our faith communities. We strive to be a true community of grace, where anyone can find forgiveness, friendship, or a second chance.
