In 2017, St. Paul’s embarked upon a two-year journey to discern and articulate our values and who we believe God is calling us to be in our community. On September 23, 2018, after nearly a dozen small-group listening sessions, active study and prayer by the vestry, and congregational feedback–the vestry unanimously adopted the following vision statement and core values. These values inform our decisions, priorities, and life together.
OUR VISION: WHO WE BELIEVE GOD IS CALLING US TO BE
As a Christ-centered worshipping community we seek to welcome and serve all God’s people so that, together, we can discover, celebrate, and grow in the love of Jesus Christ.
OUR VALUES: WHAT GUIDES OUR MINISTRY AND DECISIONS
- Deepening our relationship with a loving God.
- Bringing God’s hope, healing, and fellowship to our community in our daily lives.
- Providing children, youth, and adults with a strong faith foundation.
- Being a community that welcomes and includes all who seek to know the joy and delight of God.
