Ministries

     Our vision and mission is to connect in this community so that we can add grace and blessing to those who live near us.  We are our own kind of community where we give encouragement to one another.  We learn from this encouragement to also share with our neighbors.  We stand up for the dignity of all human beings, rich or poor, young or old, able-bodied or challenged.  We are trying to live out our spoken convictions by convincing acts of kindness and care.

     Can you spare some change?

You know the people standing on the street corner with their cardboard signs?  These children of God have special needs.  One of our service projects this year will be to make blessing bags to keep in our cars and hand them out to that person on the side of the stop sign.  It is a simple way to serve our community and reach out.  We will be collecting the items on the Blessing Bag list (see below) throughout February.  The next time you are at the dollar store pick up something on this list and drop it in the box in the back of the sanctuary marked Blessing Bags.  During Lent we will set up a time to pack the bags.  They will be available to the congregation to keep in your car and give a small token of hope to someone.
