Mission

We strive to enrich the faith formation and spiritual lives of our congregations and members. We challenge one another to engage, nurture, and learn from our youth. We gather together to worship, celebrate and strengthen our congregations. We encourage one another to practice new forms of evangelism. We unite ecumenically in the pursuit of justice and peace. We promote a diverse, loving, welcoming Christian presence in our communities. We work together to identify, train, authorize and call faith-filled leaders - lay and clergy. We encourage generous giving financially, as well as gifts God has afforded us, and we encourage participation in mission outreach. We learn from, care for, and share the resources God has entrusted to us. We support our churches through good and bad times.
