OUR CORE VALUES
Community & Fellowship
We are a Christian community where all can and do participate. Grounded in God’s love, we nurture one another.
Open Minds & Hearts
We are all God’s children, and we accept and affirm our differences. God loves each of us unconditionally, and we reflect that love in our openness to others.
Creative, participatory and expressive worship helps us encounter God and binds us together into the Body of Christ. The Spirit is at work through music, the Word, and celebration of our life together.
A Thinking Faith
Young and old, we are all growing in our Christian formation. Inquiry and dialogue draw us to God and open us to the change needed in ourselves and the world.
Mission & Service
We are called to do God’s work of justice and peace. We seek to serve others as Jesus served, and to be transformed by the encounter.
