We are The Flame! With this playful name we embrace our LGBTQIA and ally identity, and also evoke images of faith and spiritual renewal.

We are an alternative worshiping community, a little start-up church, where we gather, build relationships and community, and share our faith journeys.

We celebrate that all gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations are gifts from God, and that we are beautifully and wonderfully made just as we are.

We bring our questions, doubts, struggles, and joys.  We bring our questions, doubts, struggles, and joys.  If you don’t believe in God, are mad at God, or just wonder how anyone could have faith, you have a place here. If your faith is solid, and your flame burns bright, or if you have questions and your flame is wavering, you have a place here.

This is a group where we work to ensure that everyone feels safe and heard.

We celebrate the beautiful diversity of God’s creation, including us!
