5 VISION “A Place to Belong! A Place to Become!” We are a spiritual home, a safe haven, grounded in Scripture and centered in life, where we are nurtured and challenged in our journey of faith. We welcome all people to join us in worship and prayer, and in joyful service to the community around us. We believe that the only sufficient basis for Christian community is Christ's love for us. We experience that the power of Christ's love can hold us together in the midst of great diversity. We are a strong, independent parish in support of the larger Church. Table Discussions YouTube Video: “A Place to Belong! A Place to Become!” by Adrienne C-B (Ken) Bible Study – Terri Murphy Table Talk Questions & Discussion – Shivaun Wilkinson & Marcia Noble

6 STRATEGIES Discernment As individuals, ministries, and as a parish, we operate from a sense of call. We help each other to discern our calls and encourage each other to follow them. Engagement We intentionally and systematically invite everyone in the parish to become as deeply connected, involved, and engaged as they feel called to be. Stewardship As individuals, ministries, and as a parish, we strive to be good stewards of all that God has generously entrusted to us, investing it as God guides us to bring about God’s kingdom in our midst.
