Our Mission


(Adopted February 28, 1993)
The mission of this church is to be God’s people in this place, to be obedient to God’s unfolding will, to celebrate God’s presence, strength, faithfulness, and love; to do God’s work as the Holy Spirit moves us, and to be faithful proclaimers of the Gospel of Jesus, collectively and individually, in God’s world.

Vision Statement

We are a growing, theologically-progressive congregation with a strong UCC identity believing fully that “God is still speaking.” We seek to discern God’s voice through worship, prayer, study, and service. The balance of contemporary ideas with history and tradition, diversity of religious backgrounds, and varied faith interests is a particular blessing. We are also blessed with energetic and creative pastoral and musical leadership which enable gifts of ministry to emerge from many in our community.
