Today we extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor or yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail, or could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you if you can sing like an operatic soprano or if you shouldn’t even sing in the shower. You’re welcome here if you’re ‘just browsing’, just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope or have never set foot in a church.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet and to youth growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NFL dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegeterians, and all junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’ve been having problems, down in the dumps, or if you don’t like “organized religion”; we’ve been there too.

We welcome those who are inked or pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throat as a kid, or just got lost in Shelby Township and ended up here by mistake.

We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts ... AND YOU!
— Pastor Dave Parker
