New Here? - Welcome From Pastor Brian

Welcome to Bower Hill Church! 


Wherever you are on life’s journey, we’re glad that you found your way to us. 


If you’re looking for a nonjudgmental, forward-thinking, science-loving church that is environmentally-conscious and gay-friendly, with a long history of advocating for the oppressed, then we just might be the church for you. 


We believe that church ought to be a place where we follow the teachings of Jesus—which are simple but hard: Love God, love each other. 


At first glance, we’re a traditional neighborhood church with a steeple, a choir, and potlucks.  And yet, we have a fresh approach to faith.  Our identity as a “justice church” goes back as far as the Selma Marches.  We are rooted in the past, but not stuck in it. 


In terms of church government and history, we’re a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA), which traces its roots to the Protestant Reformation and the Church of Scotland.  But we value interfaith cooperation and find inspiration and wisdom in a variety of faith traditions. 


Here you will find active programs for children and youth, inspiring worship, intelligent classes for all age groups, a myriad of mission projects to get involved in, and a “church family” to share in the joys and sorrows of your life. 

​Call or email if you’d like to know more.  We would love to get to know you, and we hope you’ll choose to journey with us as we “grow together in faith, reason, service, and love.”

In Christ’s Peace,

Brian Snyder, Pastor
