As disciples of Christ seeking peace and justice in the world, we welcome and include all people into the fullness of God’s love. We celebrate people of all races, cultures, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, physical or mental abilities, socioeconomic statuses, appearances, family status, and citizenship as equally loved and valued in the eyes of God and in this place. All are invited to join this community as we worship God, grow in faith, and strive to love and serve one another.
"Be still and know that I am God."
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven.
Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.
Come to me, all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.
Do not fear, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, you are mine.
Seek the kingdom of God above all else, and God will give you everything you need.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go.
Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.
I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.
God takes great delight in you. God quiets you with his love and rejoices over you with singing.
