This Church acknowledges as its sole head Jesus Christ, Son of God and Savior of men and women. We recognize two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper. We affirm the responsibility of the Church in each generation to make this historic faith its own.
Our Mission is to welcome All, follow Jesus Christ together, and live God's Word with compassionate service. (adopted 1/22/2012)

Mid Week Prayer
We are lodged between peace and joy in this Advent season, Merciful God. We are pulled between our witness of a hurting world and the great gladness we have in your love. Help us be agents for change, that through the sharing of our love we might work to right the injustices of the world. In the midst of our glad celebrations may we be instruments of your peace. For this, our life's work, abide in us and strengthen us. Grant us your enduring spirit for the long haul. In your holy name we pray. Amen.
