Who We Aspire to BeOur Mission


Welcoming: We are imperfect followers of Jesus Christ who want to have eyes, minds, hearts, and arms that are open, like doors thrown widely open, to the diverse people who need God.

Embracing: We are rooted in God’s grace and connected to each other in a safe, healing garden, where God is planting seeds of faith, tending to our hope and knowledge, and growing our worship.

Reaching Out: We are discovering and using our spiritual gifts in God’s ever-changing mission and ministry, opened for us by the creative and limitless power of God’s Holy Spirit.
