Here are the new mission, vision and values statements developed in 2008-09 by the congregation and the council, with coaching from Pastor Lisa Hayes.
To be a living gospel; to let God's love shine through us.
We envision a vibrant church where many come from our neighborhood to participate in programs of physical, emotional and spiritual health and well being. At this time, our neighborhood consists primarily of adults over forty.
Jesus is Lord
We value healthy living
Our bodies are living temples to the Lord. Care and nourishment of our bodies includes a lifestyle that supports physical, spiritual, emotional and mental well being.
We value our neighborhood
We feel called to focus on those living closest to us. We welcome our neighbors from different cultures and different expressions of faith.
We value confidence
All things begin and end with God. We have an unshakable trust that God will provide the means for all our needs. God is our strength. God will take care of us.
We value compassion
Compassion is a fruit of love. As followers of Jesus, we continue His ministry through our love, support, prayer, outreach and generosity to the world God loves.
We value change
Growth cannot happen without change. Reaching out to others requires change.
