Greetings from Pastor Shannon

If you are seeking a faith community where you may see and be seen by the holy and where you can ask questions of God surrounded by the love and support of a diverse family, come and worship with us at Church of the Redeemer. We affirm and celebrate every child of God as they are created: LGBTQIA+ and straight; young and old; Black and brown and white; from every racial and ethnic background; at any and every step of your spiritual journey. At COR, may you hear the strains of your own symphony and share it with others. Together we will honor the image of God within each of us, and focus our gaze outward to participate in the movement of the holy in our community and the world. Bring your questions, your doubts, and all of the baggage that the world has placed on you. There’s enough overhead storage for us all.

Through Christ and through the Spirit,

Pastor Shannon
