We extend a special welcome to people who are single, married, divorced, filthy rich, or dirt poor. We extend a welcome to crying babies, impatient toddlers, too-cool-for-school teens and walker dependent adults. We welcome those who are as skinny as a rail and those who could afford to lose a few pounds. We welcome you no matter your sexual orientation or gender identity, and we welcome you if those topics make you feel uncomfortable.
You’re welcome here if you’re just visiting, just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope or more Methodist than John Wesley, or if you never stepped foot into a church before.
We welcome Beaver AND Duck fans, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians, and junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, down in the dumps, or in need of prayer, whether you had church shoved down your throat as a kid, or you don’t like “organized religion.” We’ve been there too.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts… and you!
