Oaklands Presbyterian Church

While no church would say that they are “unwelcoming,” the people of Oaklands truly model hospitality in astounding ways.  Our worship services and leadership span nationalities, ages, sexual orientation, political parties, socio-economic status, gender, you name it!  And while we don’t agree on everything, we are unified through our profession of faith in the Triune God.

Peace Presbyterian Church

Central to our understanding of the gospel is the inclusion of people created by God in all their diversity. This is a fiercely mission-minded congregation, open to those who follow Jesus in all their diversity. This congregation has always been “More Light.” We have not been listed as such simply because we still have trouble believing all Presbyterians would not be inclusive as the result of the scientific and biblical scholarship that has been accomplished.

Presbyterian Church of the Covenant

We are an inclusive community, experiencing, exploring, appreciating, celebrating the spiritual foundation of existence. We affirm the presence of that which has been traditionally called God in human life. We respect and honor a wide range of perceptions and affirm that questions and doubts are essential to spiritual growth. We embrace the values expressed in Jesus’ life as a guide for our lives today, while being open to the wisdom of all approaches to the sacred ground of existence.

Presbyterian New England Congregational

Our church family is diverse in age, marital status, sexual identity, theological outlook and political perspective, but we are united in belief that a church that attempts to experience the love of God within its community must also be a church that is socially conscious and politically involved. That sometimes leads to controversy and discomfort; but we believe that relevance to human life is more important than a “comfortable pew.”
