We are a healing community, ministering to each other and addressing the needs of the larger community beyond our membership.
We are a learning community, expanding our understanding of our faith even as we transmit that faith to our children.
We are an affirming community, lifting up the talents and efforts of others while strengthening our individual gifts from God.
We are a celebrating community, grateful for all that we have and sharing our joy through collective worship and common work.
