Lynnhaven Colony Congregational Church Sanctuary Entrance

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. We believe in extravagant welcome. This is why we insist that God’s communion table is open, not closed, and God’s gift and claim in baptism are irrevocable. We advocate justice for all. Our congregations extend hospitality as a sign of God’s inclusive love. We teach that evangelism — offering bread to those in search of it — is God’s mission. Our perspective is global, not provincial. We work with — not against — people of other faiths. Why? Because God is still speaking.

Throughout the year we meet on Mondays 7pm at a local brewery to discuss various topics on Progressive Christianity.  Normally, we will meet 6-8 weeks at time and then take a break for holidays.  Past topics have included why bad things happen to good people, if everything does happen for a reason, traditional gender roles in church, and how other religions relate to Christianity.  Check the events page or our Facebook page for updates!

Good people. Good conversation. Good beer.  Hope to see you there!
