A Church For The Rest Of Us?
Via de Cristo Faith Community is a warm and inclusive, theologically progressive, and denominationally independent Christian gathering, open to inter-tradition dialogue.
Our community embodies a premise that differs from most. We do not gather around specific sets of beliefs, creeds or doctrines. Rather, we acknowledge that an active spiritual life for many is a continuing, evolving, and often quite individual journey.
Our common ground lies in affirming a simpler, more heart-experienced way of "being" in this world, "...acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with our God."
[cf. Micah 6:8].
Here we build community, walking together with our questions and conversations, ...exploring, ...learning, ...ruminating, ...and enriched by the sharing of our individual and varied faith journeys, which are always works in progress.
Individually and in community, we also strive to make a difference in the troubles of our world, making lives a little easier, or futures a little brighter for some who are disadvantaged, homeless, or refugees.
We invite you to walk a little way (or a lot!) with us, exploring the many ways in which this Via de Cristo, ...this Way of Christ, ...can come to life in our hands and feet, ...in our own time and place, ...touching and often changing lives of others for the better.
EASY TO FIND!

This Sunday morning (November 18, 2018), we welcome once again guest speaker Neda Movehed, bringing an interactive message, "Exposing Our Creative Powers."
Neda says her work these days is to live up to her name; Neda = conscience/ message, Yousefi = descendent of Joseph (known for prophetic dreaming), Movahed = believer in a unified God.
Neda is a Ph.D student in sustainability at Arizona State University, working on a collaborative “toolkit” of experiential activities that can support cultural change.
She grew up in an intentional community of family members in Maryland. She sits on the board of Arizona Interfaith Power and Light, and helps facilitate weekly contemplative practices through the Mindfulness Community at ASU.
