Service

We give generously to better the lives of people around us, and to be part of God's mission in the world.


We pursue long-term relationships with people and agencies  outside the congregation who are active in service.


We serve with vulnerability, keeping the well-being of the other as our primary focus.


We look to recognize how we are Christian servants in our daily lives and vocations.
