About Us

We are a church that is dedicated to serving others and serving God. This is the core of our vision and our mission.

Contact Us

We would love to hear from you. Feel free to give us a shout and connect with us.


"As the pastors of this unique faith community, we care deeply about the people and creation around us. Our congregation is as vibrant and inviting as the Native Habitat that surrounds our building and as bold as the solar panels on our roof. We hope you will join us on this adventure we call faith.


Each of us, exactly as we are--and as we are still becoming-- are named beloved by the One who created us. All are welcome as together we endeavor to be and create the Kin-dom of God. We listen deeply for what the Spirit is calling us to be and to do in this world. We wrestle with questions more than we offer answers. We like it that way; we believe Jesus did the same thing!


May you feel the presence of the Spirit and remember that you are loved as you explore both faith and doubt.  Perhaps your journey will lead you to Carmel, IN. If it does, we hope to meet you."

Lori Bievenour and Rebecca Lockwood
