Our Winter theme is Entertaining Angels (taken from Hebrews 13.2). We're asking if you could write about someone (750-900 words) who made a difference for you, someone who was God's messenger of grace for you. We're hoping to use them in worship and in the Collage. See the Thanksgiving Sermon for more. Email them to us.

with us Sundays. Casual attire is cool. Early Tessera service in Chapel @ 8:45 AM is "contemporary" flavored. 11 AM worship is in the main sanctuary. Open hearts and minds recommended. Sunday School @ 9:45 AM with classes for everyone.

who are we?
We are the only Baptist congregation in Greensboro that is welcoming and affirming of everyone who follows Jesus as Lord. So we accept gay and lesbian Christians as well as straight ones! Being radically inclusive is not our thing—our thing is radically following Jesus, or doing the best we can, and trying not to embarrass Jesus by our following. Some would call us liberal or moderate. We are an inclusive, fun faith community where persons from all walks of life feel comfortable worshiping and working together to bring Christ's love to the world. We are not affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA, Alliance of Baptists and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Read more.

Three Nickels

three nickels fund
Three Nickels is a missions fund-raising program to help people living and dying in extreme poverty throughout the world. The yearly goal is to have 100 families or individuals pledge to give at least $1 per week (3 nickels per day). In 2014, our Three Nickels money will be used to provide aid to Syrian refugees, help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and provide small business loans to families in northern Thailand.
