In prayerful discernment, we have crafted purpose and vision statements that we feel express what God is calling our church to be. The congregation was actively a part of this process and was invited to contribute their feelings and thoughts to make sure that the statements we embraced are a shared expression.

Purpose

God’s love enlivens us to rise up to be a Christ-inspired, joyous community of faith where spirit and compassion meet.

Vision

Imagine a Church where worship uses music and the arts to glorify God; where all ages gather together in celebration of our faith, sharing friendships that sustain us; and where the Spirit of God moves us to rise up for justice and peace, and to reach out to those in need.

Here, we celebrate life’s mystery and wonder as we strive to grow in the faith and be disciples for Christ.

Here, we covenant together, sharing ministry with the pastor, to make the Church a place where lives are changed, hope is renewed, and all people are accepted as the children of God.

To rise up to our vision, we will:

  • Covenant together as a community of faith.
  • Deepen our faith, and as individuals and a congregation respond to God’s call.
  • Nurture our children into the Christian faith.
  • Strengthen open and honest communication.
