Galileo Church

Quirky church for spiritual refugees. Who would Jesus love?

Our missional priorities:
1. We do justice for LGBTQ+ humans, and support the people who love them.
2. We do kindness for people with mental illness and in emotional distress, and celebrate neurodiversity.
3. We do beauty for our God-Who-Is-Beautiful.
4. We do real relationship, no bullshit, ever.
5. We do whatever it takes to share this good news with the world God still loves.

big red barn - rental information

The Big Red Barn is great if you're a do-it-yourself event planner. The price is right and you have so much flexibility within the space to get the look you want for your big day. The only limit is your imagination!

This cheerful, shabby-chic, urban-rural Big Red Barn (with a sense of humor!) is a 5200 sq foot facility with corrugated sheet metal and cedar panel walls. It's perfect for private events like birthdays, weddings, celebrations, and family reunions; and equally perfect for public events like concerts, recitals, small conventions, and seminars. We are open and affirming to the LGBTQ+ community and would love to provide a safe space for your wedding and reception.
