Mission Statement: Our mission is to bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus, leading others to Christ. Our hope is to make the world a place that is more accepting and less violent; more welcoming of others and less alienating; more respectful of our planet and less consuming of Earth’s resources. We serve God’s people in many ways, including education, health care, spirituality, pastoral care, prison ministry, the arts, and care of creation, among others. The Gospel message of love and compassion lead us to be concerned about peace and justice issues, including comprehensive immigration reform, sensible gun control, alternatives to the death penalty, and advocacy against human trafficking among others.
