ARK Community Church is a gathering of progressive liberal seekers.
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight, don’t know, filthy rich, dirt poor, no habla ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail. We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion,” we’ve been there too.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!
Remember that with faith we can do great things, even when it’s scary. We can make a positive difference every day in the lives of others with simple acts of random kindness.
