In September of 2008, this little church of about 100 people decided that rather than acting like our lives were perfect and that we had it all figured out, we were going to begin to be honest about the mistakes, worries, confusion, brokenness, hurt, pain, guilt, shame, and mess that existed in all of our lives and stories. We committed to be a place where it was always going to be okay to not be okay. After talking with our friends and allies up at Flatirons Community Church, we adopted their phrase that has become much more popular in recent years: "me too.” In short, for us, "me too" simply meant, "oh, you've got a jacked up story? Me too.” In the fall of 2008 we became a place where people are always safe, regardless of how their story reads or what they believe. That continues to this very day. We will always be a safe place for all people.
But, “me too” is where we start. It is not, and has never been, intended to be the destination. It is okay to not be okay; it is NOT okay to stay there. And that’s ok, because none of us really want to do that! We are all looking for a better way to live— for something to address the mess in our lives. That's why our mission is to help everyone that steps into this safe, "me too" place, to begin to discover their own story, experience Jesus within that story, both past and present, and learn to live to rescue. So, every week when you show up, we want you to understand that you are not alone. This is still a “me too” place. Together, every week, we want to chase after what life can really be for us. We want to chase after the life that God sent his son Jesus to bring us— the life we’ve ALL been looking for.
