We hope to live with openness toward one another, toward our neighbors and toward strangers who we hope will become friends. We want to meet around a table, sharing meals and stories and laughter and tears, sharing life. All are welcome here.

As we find restoration, we want to be part of God’s intent to restore all things. We want to give ourselves to the long, deep work older Christian communities called “the cure of the soul,” the radical healing of the whole person – and the radical healing of whole communities by the radical love expressed in Jesus’ death and resurrection.
We want to work toward the well-being of our city, reflecting the reality that, in every way, Jesus is good news (gospel) for Charlottesville. We hope to see life, in all of its wonder and beauty and healing, take root among us – and among our neighbors.
