Grace in action
We take the tagline "Gods Work. Our Hands." to heart!
We are people
people engaging everyday circles, our neighborhood and the world. 

We celebrate w
e’re forgiven, not perfect. Diversity is a gift. Acceptance is a baseline. Self-control is learned; respect for others too. Crafting safe space gets attention. We like to have fun. We share what we have because we can. In the process we discover the best life for ourselves. Gathering weekly for sacramental worship is a life-giving connection!

We acknowledge church has much to answer for.  With intention, we seek to be kind; neighbors, newcomers and local resource partners matter.  We use “safe sanctuary” practices for children, youth and adults, as do groups under our roof. We commit to open listening and reflection whenever people communicate honestly and directly with our community leaders. 

We believe God honors every human mess and can bring healing, (re)form and new life. “Through worship, service and education we practice our faith, grow our relationship with God and experience God’s grace in our lives.” (ELCA)
