Our Vision

Called and empowered by the Holy Spirit to share God’s grace...
We will gather for worship to praise God, to be strengthened by His Word and Sacraments and to be sent forth to live our faith.
We will gather for fellowship and friendship to grow as God’s family.
We will provide settings for ministry that reach all, especially children and youth, to help them learn how to grow in their faith.
We will provide opportunities to serve God by reaching out in Christian love beyond the church to serve our community. We will be loving stewards of God’s gifts.
