Company Description
Our mission: With Christ's love, answer the call, connect with hope, and care for neighbors.
Our vision: To be salt and light to our neighborhood and world that others might give glory to God.
Our core values: 1. Prioritize people and relationships over programs and outcomes. (Jesus’ ministry was defined more by his time spent with people than by miracles or sermons. Our primary ministry is deepening relationships with people. We assume good intentions in others. We express gratitude.)
2. Embody love through radical welcome. (God is our refuge and we create refuge for others. We invite people to know Jesus’ love and God’s salvation, coming as they are. We welcome them in their differences of experience, ability, and opinion. We are accessible, hospitable, and safe. We fight for equity for all of God’s children.)
3. Honor God’s call and gifts in others. (We assume the Spirit is at work in all people. We welcome every volunteer for their unique gifts and perspective and we support their development. We hold each other accountable to the mission of the church with compassion and honesty. We speak directly to those we disagree with.)
4. Embrace new paths. (Because we are new creations in Christ, we take on a new life and put away old patterns. Growth only comes with change. Stagnation leads to spiritual death.)
5. Serve one another. (Each of us is called by God to service. We give our time, talent, and treasure to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each other, our neighbors, and the world. We ask and listen instead of assuming what is helpful.)
6. Go two by two. (Whenever possible, we do things with two or more people rather than doing them alone. We teach and learn from each other. We invite reflection and critique as ways to grow and develop.)
7. Take rest and play seriously. (Sabbath is a sign that we are free to enjoy life and play. We honor one another’s and our own need to rest and rejuvenate. We foster laughter and fun and don’t take ourselves too seriously!)
8. Look for God’s grace in everything, even our messes. (Not every act of ministry turns out the way we plan. We offer and receive grace in our “failures.” We look for God’s redemption and use all things, good and bad, to God’s glory.)
Why Work Here?
We are a small, creative, and passionate congregation grounded in God's grace. We have a heart for community, collaboration, and inclusion.
