Our Mission Statement

We are a congregation that cherishes our traditions, our children, our democracy, and our openness to many expressions of life’s many truths. In the presence of a safe and loving community, our mission is: 

To pursue personal spiritual growth
We are seekers on spiritual journeys, willing to risk the unknown, finding joy in the search, and appreciating the simple gifts of life. Our journey helps us explore our inner selves.
To minister to each other
We care for each other.  Our worship together sustains us. We embrace diversity and celebrate the connections that make life worthwhile. Through the richness of religious traditions, we support spiritual growth for all ages.

To live our faith in our daily lives
We are a people of many viewpoints who share the values of love, justice, freedom, and respect for the dignity of all.  We strive to be a community of action, where convictions find expression in conduct, and faith is demonstrated by our deeds.
