Who We Are

IMG_0457_edited.jpg

We are 49 communities,

some well into their fourth century,

and some just taking their first teetering steps.

We are families, tribes, and gatherings of generations

that shift and change throughout the years.

We care about worship.

We care about equipping our people to live meaningfully

and faithfully in this ever-changing world, and about making a difference in our communities near and far.

We love to eat, to laugh, to pray, and to dream.

We want the world to know the power of following Jesus –

the transformative power of grace,

the disarming power of forgiveness,

the tenacious power of love

that refuses to give up.

We want to relish the abundant life

that is found in Christ.

We want to boldly live into God’s call to be

the light of the world, the salt of the earth, and a sign of hope

in a hopeless world.

We want to be accountable and responsible.

We want to grow in every way –

to grow in depth of faith,

to grow in our impact on our communities,

to grow in number.

But How?

This is why we are connected as a presbytery.

We are sibling churches who can, through elected committees and teams, support and challenge one another, watch out for each other,

and keep one another focused on our reason for being:

to live the Gospel in all that we do.

Church Interior

We affirm that the God who creates, redeems and empowers us is the foundation of our life together.

Our Mission

Witness & Confess

We will WITNESS by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ's reconciling love so as to invite individual and corporate commitment to Christ.

 

We will CONFESS our own and the world's brokenness and act as agents of God's power to heal the divisions among us.

Care & Equip

We will CARE for ourselves and others in need by working together in the spirit of God's justice and mercy.

We will EQUIP the Ministers, including Ministers of Word and Sacrament and Ruling Elders, and members and children of our congregations to exercise discipleship and to participate more fully in the life of the whole church.

Support

We will SUPPORT one another by developing and mobilizing all resources to achieve our mission.
