Posted on: January 14, 2015
The church is located in the capital city of Washington, across the street from the Capitol Campus. This is not a neighborhood church, but draws members from the greater county. The Congregation is social-justice oriented and is made up of independent thinkers. The Congregation is unique in the solid contributions and significant representation of the many members who live at Panorama City, a local retirement_noemailmunity. In addition, the Congregation has a large number of retired pastors as active members. The Congregation is a Federated body, representing two denominations. The Congregation's recent growth has been from UCC members, but the Congregation as a whole does not draw lines, and one cannot tell a Presbyterian from a UCC member on the vast majority of issues. Open and affirming is a strong value for a predominant portion of the congregation and the rainbow flag has hung on the outside of our church. Open and affirming has_noemaile to be a key value and the reason many people, regardless of sexual orientation,_noemaile to and stay at this church.
In general, this church is u_noemailfortable sitting still and is looking for an interim that will help us move forward as we seek and call our permanent pastor.
