Mission and Outreach

Christian Faith Education

We believe that the Christian life is not simply a set of beliefs to learn about, or about learning the books of the Bible, but rather by practicing the life that Jesus set before us – becoming ‘disciples’ of Jesus’ teaching – that it is more blessed to give than to receive; that those who are blessed are those who mourn and are peacemakers. We practice forgiveness and recognizing our own need for forgiveness. We practice kindness and compassion rather than judgment. We are a congregation that celebrates diversity and welcomes people wherever they are on life’s journey. We do not have a creed that we all must assent to, rather each of us has the responsibility and freedom to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. To that end, we are always seeking and searching and listening. We don’t have all the questions worked out. We don’t have easy, pat answers for every situation and circumstance, but believe that by God’s power at work in us, ‘all things work together for good to those who love the Lord.”

We have several opportunities for our children, youth and adults to participate in not only being educated, but growing in faith! Our Jr. Church meets alongside of us on Sunday mornings, gathering with us until about 10:15 and then going to their own classes. There are adult Bible studies in various groups throughout the church and we’re happy to help you find one! During Lent, we have a Soup and Study event that is always a highlight of the year for us. Confirmation for our youth is a two year program and begins in 8th grade. In the summer, we host a Summer Faith Adventure(the old Vacation Bible School) which welcomes kids from all across the community to learn more about Christ through Bible stories, games, crafts, music and even science.
