Our Ministries & Activities
The mission of our church is:
Creating connection by
listening to our deepest selves,
opening to life's gifts and
serving needs greater than our own -
Each of our church ministries pursues our church mission of "Listen, Open, Serve" in a particular way. We've boiled each ministry's purpose down to a single, dynamic phrase. See the descriptions below and follow the links to learn more.
It's about "helping people remember who they most want to be." Learn more.
It's about "helping people become the people they want to be." Learn more about our dozens of small groups that help all of us pursue spiritual growth, find community and tap into richer and "deeper" living.
