  • Offering sacred space as a sanctuary for all
  • Promoting education and spiritual growth
  • Being good stewards of God’s gifts, talents and resources
  • Embodying God’s love as we minister to our neighbors everywhere through prayer and acts of service
  • Offering public witness for justice and mercy
