Welcome To Northaven
Welcome to Northaven, a vibrant, progressive and growing congregation with a deep commitment to the Christian values of love, peace, and justice. That means extending hospitality to all. It means nurturing a community of faith that reflects our world’s awesome diversity. It also means taking a stand in the face of the prejudice and bigotry that pervade our world.
Simply put, we strive to live our mission statement: As one body of Christ, the people of Northaven are committed to sharing God’s love for the world through ministries of compassion, peace, justice and reconciliation.
