Mission statement was shared. Christians serving, learning and loving.
Looked at the suggested budget. Shared budget addendum for audio visual equipment.
We serve by prayerfully discerning the spiritual life of the congregation and the needs of the world,
so we may craft joyful worship experiences that share divine compassion, nurture understanding,
foster confidence in God’s loving care and shape vision for each person’s personal life in Christ.
Learning from relevant models that teach the mutual exchange of loving respect to enhance healthy relationships.
