We believe that we strengthen our faith walk through prayer, worship, education, service, and fellowship.  In walking with God, we are an example (role model) of God’s grace.

We practice purposeful prayer for help, guidance, and thanksgiving regarding personal life, the church, community, and the world.

We utilize a milestones ministry for all ages to continue on our faith journey.

  1. In open Sacramental Worship

What does this mean?

Communion is a foundation of our worship service and is open to all who believe.  We receive Jesus’ body and blood through the sacrament of communion.  We believe that God fills us with the Holy Spirit through baptism regardless of age or understanding.  Baptism is the beginning of a lifelong relationship with God.

  1. We are a community that welcomes and values all people

What does this mean?

Jesus sought to see people from every walk of life, to hear their stories, and to claim them as children of God. We follow his example.

  1. In building authentic relationships

What does this mean?

We have a personal relationship with God and one another. We build authentic lasting relationships within our community and the world.

  1. In giving generously of our time, talents, and treasure

What does this mean?

We believe in being good stewards.  As a part of faith formation, we equip people to give freely and joyously of time, talents, treasure and love.  We take care of each other, our church, our planet and our resources.
