Liberal or Modern American/Bilingual Church

Does anyone know of any liberal Christian churches that have English sessions? I live near Shi-Da and Tai-Da and would have thought there would be some for college-aged students, but so far, more seem to be rather traditional.

The church I go to might be what you're looking for. The pastor's from the US and he's black (with a little Indian mixed in). His wife is Taiwanese and she translates his sermons into Mandarin. A good non-denominational church with lots of good music. It's a small place, though. In case you're interested, here's a link:

Please PM me or reply here with contact info if you want me to meet you nearby and walk you to the church (I tried to PM you but wasn't successful for some reason so maybe providing contact info might be better).

Here is how I introduced [Buddhism to] my grandmother when she saw a chenrezig pendant hanging in my car:

Grandmother: Is that Buddha? Are you some kine of Buddhist? (in a sarcastic aggressive tone)
Me: No, it's a Chinese Jesus. (anything with Asian flair to her was chinese)
Grandmother: (tone now changed to happy and excited) Really? I did'nt know chinese had jesus?
