What makes us unique? Our values that shape and guide our life together:
Accepting people for who they are and where they are on their faith journey.
Growing in our faith by asking questions and wrestling with ambiguity.
Serving others in the same way Christ served others.
Welcoming young and old, singles and families, respectful of race, nationality, sexual orientation, and persons of differing abilities.
We hope you'll join us for worship on Sundays at 10:30 am.

Our Vision Faith De Peres’ Vision is to be a faith community that challenges the present to change the future to make Christ known.
Our Mission Our Mission is to reflect and live God’s love, accept and affirm all and inspire a passion to do God’s work.
From Sunday morning worship that helps you get through your week, to faith formation classes to deepen your faith, to giving back to the community, we offer a variety of ways to get connected.
From growing food for Circle of Concern in our community garden to setting aside the Sunday after Easter for a day of service, we take seriously our value to serve others as Christ served others. If you're looking for a church that puts their faith into action, you'll find one here.
Our aim is to foster relationships across generations that help kids in their lifelong journey of faith. For us this means we won't chase the latest fad in Christian education or segment the kids off on their own. Instead, our kids will know adults on a first-name basis and receive the support they need from a community that cares.
If you're looking for worship that resembles a show, we may not be for you. But if you're looking for worship that touches your heart and head, this may be the place for you. We offer thoughtful worship for thinking people in a beautiful sanctuary where the greeting is as warm as the light that shines through our windows. Come to have your faith nurtured, challenged and strengthened.
