Life in Mission

Mission Statement 

"To pledge our lives to Christ and covenant with each other to demonstrate as disciples: His spirit through worship, witness, and ministry tot he needs of the people of this church and the community. We invite and welcome all to be included within our fellowship."

Vision for Mission

Show Compassion: Because we have been given so much, we share what we have with those in need, encouraging those who receive to do the same; we don’t ask people to pay it back, but to pay it forward.

Stop to Listen: We connect with others by spending time with them, listening uncritically to as much of their story as they are ready to share, and sharing as much of God’s story as they are ready to receive.

Seek Beauty: Seeing God’s image in ourselves sets us free from the tyranny of being defined in comparison to others; seeing God’s image in others sets us free to see their inherent worth.

Affirm Grace: By opening our lives to God’s grace, we find hope and healing for ourselves and are able to extend hope and healing to others.
