Welcome to our
This is a place of BLENDing - we BLEND music genres, ideas, needs, solutions, and folks. We BLEND the word of Christ with the needs of today!
We offer Free Coffee and Donuts every Sunday!
We have Sunday school with loving and compassionate lessons that aid children in embodying their faith.
There are no better words to live by than the words of Jesus himself, “Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.” Here at theBLEND we take those words seriously and emphasize that we see our neighbors as everyone. We are a church family with an urgent desire to continually press on using love and compassion as the fuel to grow and stretch beyond our walls and property lines. theBLEND demonstrates loving your neighbor through radical hospitality and absolute inclusiveness, with an utmost concern for social justice and diversity. We can grow beautifully together in fellowship while we stay grounded in our “follow-ship” with the One who created us and always sees the best of us.
What is Open and Affirming?
We are a church that welcomes persons of all gender expressions and sexual orientations to the table of Christ’s communion and to the full life and leadership of the Christian Church.

ALL MEANS ALL
What does 'love your neighbor as yourself' mean if it doesn't apply to everyone? Here at theBLEND we offer an invitation and a heartfelt welcome to all. We are an open and affirming church family and if you identify with the LGBTQIA+ community you are as important and recognized to us as you are to God. Our welcome reaches out to all races, ethnicities, genders, gender identities/ expressions, non-binary folks, sexual orientations, socio-economic status, martial status, physical or mental ability, or any other designation. Come and freely worship and hopefully fall in love with our church family. We are theBLEND!
