In the late 1960s, Skyline’s founders literally walked from door to door, inviting their neighbors to meet with them and found a church. Skyline thus began its life as a neighborhood church, and remains that way. All who wished to be part of an inclusive, diverse church community were – and are – actively welcome at Skyline. At Skyline, “family” includes both traditional and non-traditional families. We welcome single people as well. Family is a matter of attitude, not legal definition. Our church congregation models a way that people from different backgrounds, ethnicity, sexual orientation and faith traditions can come together as a family and deal lovingly with difference through their sharing of a love for God and God’s creation.
As a community faithful to the teachings of Jesus Christ, we acknowledge the worth of all beings, regardless of ability, age, ancestry, family or economic status, gender, sexual orientation, spiritual path, cultural origin, or any other visible or invisible difference.
As believers in the reconciling power of God, we invite all who wish to join us, to enter our Sanctuary and the full life of our church family.
Ours is a God of justice and compassion, and our church lives in covenant with God to do its utmost to pursue justice and compassion, as an Open and Affirming congregation.
