All Are Welcome • No Registration Required

Welcome to the church nurturing spirit and service – a liberal religious voice lighting a moral beacon in Central Missouri. In the spirit of courageous love, we forge a community of radical welcome and deep connection that moves us together to heal the world. We invite you to join us.

Rev. Molly Housh Gordon delivered her sermon, “This Is Water,” on June 18, 2017. She
explored how we can live out our values of mutual concern, worth and dignity, and collective
liberation when the primacy of whiteness, maleness, heterosexuality, middle-class-ness,
and able-bodiedness are the water in which we swim, the invisible “normal.”
