Our Mission Statement

We gather in grace, connected by a sense of place and purpose with generations of faithful servant-leaders who journeyed before us. We seek to open our hearts as we open our doors Ė with room for everyone Ė and to open all our senses to Godís life-affirming, life-changing presence through creative and diverse worship.

We grow in grace, not because we know all the answers Ė or even all the questions Ė but because we are drawn to Godís word and Christís example. We seek to be Christís family here and now Ė to embrace each other as we are, to nurture who we might become, to celebrate with one another in good times and encourage one another in hard times, to listen and learn and lead.

We go in grace, challenged and strengthened by the Spirit to do Godís work and show Godís love in the world. We seek to look beyond our walls and beyond ourselves Ė to see Godís image in every face, and to serve Godís people in every place life leads us.

The journey continues in an ever-widening circle of grace.

Go into the world today and have courage,
Hold on to what is good,
Return no one evil for evil,
Honor all of Godís children,
Love and serve the Lord, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.
And as you go, may the Spirit of God go beside you to be your companion,
Go above you to watch over you,
Go before you to show you the way
and behind you to push you into places you might not go alone,
And go within you to let you know you are loved more deeply than you can possibly imagine.
May the fire of Godís love burn brightly in you,
And through you into the world.
Go in peace. Amen.
