Vision & Mission
Loving Everyone. Building Community. Serving Selflessly. Following Christ.
Vision & Mission – The Mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our Congregation’s Vision Statement is loving everyone, building community, serving selflessly, following Christ. Our congregation worked together for many months, through town hall meetings, small group dinners in homes, surveys and meetings to create our vision. This vision statement provides our strategic direction and describes what we want our church to achieve in the future.
Loving Everyone – Every single person is a beloved child of God, there are no conditions or restrictions. God loves everyone and so should we.
Building Community – We believe there is always room for one more or many more at the table and we must work to build relationships with one another within the congregation, with all who set foot in this building, with our neighbors and community partners and people everywhere.
Serving Selflessly – Putting our own gifts, talents, energy and passion to work for the benefit of the community and the world.
Following Christ – As Christians, we must continually learn more, strengthen our spiritual practices and live our lives according to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
For years now we’ve had this as our vision statement – a picture of what we think it looks like for our church to be faithful to God. You probably know the words by heart. You may even recognize the icons we have for our vision statement.
But what does it really look like when our vision is lived out? My hope and prayer of our congregation is that we continue to follow where God leads, do what God calls us to do and to trust that God will be with us.
This is a great place to be in ministry. Thank you for your faithfulness and your boldness!
