A CHURCH FOR THE REST OF US?
Via de Cristo Faith Community is a warm and energized progressive Christian gathering, denominationally independent and open to inter-tradition dialogue.
What draws us together is more about a simpler way of being followers of Jesus, including our questions and the value of conversation as we walk together, ...exploring, ...learning, ...enriched by the sharing of our individual and varied faith journeys.
We acknowledge, and respect, and learn from the uniqueness of each individual and the distinctives of their own spiritual journeys. This is a meaningfully different and dynamic premise which contrasts with holding in common a particular defined set of beliefs or creeds or doctrines,
At the heart of Via de Cristo is the simple touchstone of the ways of Jesus, and how those ways come to life in our hands and feet, ...in our own time and place, to touch and change lives in ways that matter.
2018 - A Year of Questions
Continue to submit your questions via the Question Bowl (on the goodies counter) about most anything relating to your faith walk and its foundations and questions. These will feed future messages and conversations as we continue in this new 2018 A Year of Questions.

On 18 March, 2018, Pastor Steve Davis brings the message, "Anam Cara" [Gaelic: "Soul Friend."
The day after St. Patrick's Day seems a fit time to pause and acknowledge the emerging wealth and wisdom of the Celtic contribution to Christian spirituality.
Reverence for the soul in all things (animate and inanimate) expresses spiritual and material life not as oppositional or contradictory, but deeply complimentary and harmonious.
Add a leprechaun or two and it’s not surprising that there is a version of the Last Supper in which, after they have finished, Jesus stands and leads the disciples in a Hebrew circle dance,
“I will pipe, dance all of you. . . .The whole universe takes part in the dance.”
