Whenever someone is exploring a new community, one question is front and center: “Can I belong here?” We want to know if the church or workplace or neighborhood we’re considering will fully accept and welcome us. At the Branch, the answer is a resounding yes. You belong here.

For us, belonging includes an invitation to participate. No matter your race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, gender identity, political persuasion or religious background you are invited to fully participate in the life of our community through service, worship and leadership.

We are committed to following Jesus’ lead and welcoming everyone into our family, all the while seeking peace and those things that build up one another (Romans 14:19).
