our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God

our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves

our hope is that the best is yet to come

Join us this Sunday at EMBRACE as we continue our sermon series called JUSTFAITH. P. Sam will sharing the message entitled:

“ALL MEANS ALL” based on Ephesians 2:8-22

We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.

EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.

We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.

We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.

EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.

We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.

We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.

EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.

Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.

We’ll see you this Sunday!



The Christian community is supposed to be a welcoming, inclusive community where ALL are invited to find a place of belonging and full participation. The world as we know it is a divided world – divided politically, racially, socio-economically, and even theologically. How do we live into the vision of the full body of Christ in which there are no dividing walls? How do we make sure that what we purport to stand for and believe in does not demean or exclude certain people groups? As The United Methodist Church wrestles with the theological division inherent in the denomination around LGBTQ issues, it is important that EMBRACE prayerfully considers what it means for it to be a community of INCLUSION.
