March 29th recording

Here you’ll find most of the recording from our time of worship over Zoom.

 

Welcome to the Branch!

We’re so glad you’re here. We know that it takes energy and courage to find a faith community and our hope is that this site helps you in that search.

Here are some things we think are important to know straight away….

First, we love people. All people. And we believe that human-made divisions are just that. God loves all people, no matter age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, or theological persuasion and that is why everyone is invited to fully participate and contribute to our community.

Second, we are committed to the places where we live. Whether we’re in a rural, suburban or urban context, the call is the same: to love our neighbor and invest in our neighborhood.

And third, we are determined to be honest — honest about our growing edges and blind spots as well as those places in our world that continue to harm and oppress. We are working to name what is actually true (including the stuff we’d like to ignore) so that God can transform our lives and usher in a new wave of justice and peace.

There’s a lot more to say, of course but we hope that’s a good start.
Welcome!
