Our Mission:

We are a committed Christian congregation focused on serving God, our community and one  another. We strive to exemplify these values through:

  • Intentionally welcoming all God’s children regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, and  cultural backgrounds.
  • Growing in love by worshipping and studying God’s Word together.
  • Committing ourselves to the vision of Matthew 25 by sharing our resources and working to help our neighbors in need.  

Our Vision:

  • We believe all people deserve housing and shelter. We will seek ways to partner with others in our community to be a place known for offering shelter, community, and hope to the unhoused.  
  • We believe that all people have gifts to share. We will seek to build an inclusive community where all those who feel called by our mission/vision can use and develop their gifts to serve others.
