Share Your Life Journey

Every week you have an opportunity to be around others who like you, experience the ups and downs of life. You dont have to do anything alone, and with a community of people we all support and care for one another. We all take responsibility for ourselves and our happiness, but there is something very sacred about sharing our lives with others. To be seen and heard without being fixed or changed. We want you to share your life with us, as we share ours with you on our life's journey. 

Small Groups

Our small groups help you to connect with others respectfully with ideas and insights. We will use books to inspire ideas or we may ask thoughtful questions that help us connect with our  purpose, interest and understanding more deeply. Developing together helps us to be stronger and more effective in our lives individually.

Why Should I Go to This Church?

Church of the Beatitudes is...

We are an open and affirming progressive Christian community of faith-seeking and faith-keeping people grounded in stories and truths from the scriptures. We are open to insights and interpretations of God revealed to us through new experiences, different faiths and diverse cultures. We provide opportunities for formation of Christian ideals through spiritual enrichment, offer education for progressive Christians to find their own ways of understanding Jesus, and encourage practice of these teachings in everyday living. 

Testimonials

You are free to be you. You do not have to follow strict interpretations of the Bible for example. One does not have to worship in a certain way. You are free to differ in opinion with your seatmate.

Not only is it community oriented, but is open to members to express and embrace their own philosophies, spirituality and faith following.

First of all the music pulled me in. This church is so welcoming. I have made some great friends here!

There are people I've loved for a long time who attend this church. I need a church that truly accepts all peoples and allows me to explore my spirituality freely.

It is an outreach centered entity working to better the community around us. Charity begins at home and spreads by service to others.

Church of Beatitudes is a friendly and open environment. This church cares for not only its congregational members but the homeless and less fortunate.

It's welcoming, from the signs outside to the staff and volunteers. The music is soulful, inspiring and entertaining. Access to the sermon online every Sunday is fantastic.
