Open & Affirming
In our effort to be faithful to our understanding of the implications of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we affirm that God loves all humankind—people of all genders, ages, races, ethnic origins, religious backgrounds, physical and mental abilities and sexual orientations. We seek to be inclusive, accepting all who would join in a pilgrimage of faith with us as we seek the meaning of mercy, justice and compassion in living our lives in this place and at this time.
As stewards we have a responsibility to be caretakers of Creation. Getting out into nature, really experiencing it firsthand (not just through books, movies, or our kitchen windows) develops an appreciation that leads to taking action to protect it. This ministry team will offer field trip opportunities to enjoy nature in the mountains, along the rivers, and in the wetlands, and put you in touch with service opportunities.
Community & Compassionate Action
Compassionate Action helps us be the hands that extend God’s extravagant welcome in our world. Compassionate Action begins with a desire to see as God sees – to see our interconnected nature that comes from all creation as equally sacred unique reflections of God’s image.
Compassionate Action extends God’s unconditional welcome through volunteer service and financial support that helps ensure basic needs are met and dignity upheld.
No matter who you are or where
you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
As a community of faith we seek to challenge and transform the world, beginning with ourselves, and to celebrate the image of God in every person and in all creation.
Responding to God’s love, we gather to be a healing, authentic, and empowered community who, through worship, education, fellowship and compassionate action, extend God’s extravagant welcome in the world.
We courageously embrace innovation and open minded conversation, where inclusion is expected and people of all walks of life are welcomed and encouraged to seek God and progress on their own spiritual journeys.
