Worship at Beacon
Come and join us in the adventure: Sundays at 5PM
Beacon is a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and as such we welcome people from any and all backgrounds. Beacon is LGBTQ+ affirming, family-friendly, and worship is explanatory and down-to-earth.
We believe in a God who offers a wide welcome to all people regardless of their faith, joys, sorrows, concerns, jokes, excitement, anger, or delight. At Beacon we work hard to make a safe space for people to encounter this God of welcome and love. God wants us to tell the stories God has given each of us, to God, to each other, even to the ends of the earth. Beacon's worship service is a space where we take seriously the role of speaking truth, the truth as we know it, the truth of who God is and has been to us in our lives. We bring our whole selves to share in singing, praying, speaking, and eating together, relying on each other for all the pieces of God’s story in our midst.
