How people describe our church
We are a community of people who enjoy each other, who take seriously our walk with God and who recognize that, for us, owning a building and producing a high-tech Sunday morning service aren't the core ingredients that help us become better followers of Jesus. We approach things more simply. We seek to hear God speak through His Word, look for His presence in our lives, and grow deeper in community.
What Sunday morning is like
We begin with a few minutes of actual conversation and a cup of coffee; not just a handshake and hello in between songs, but a few minutes to truly catch up with each other. Then we begin our worship service which includes contemporary Christian music, prayer, a time for personal reflection, and a message from the Scripture. After church we have refreshments before “packing up” and putting everything away.
What we value
There are two key questions that reflect the central values of the Evangelical Covenant Church of America (our denomination): Where is it written? How goes your walk?
Where is it written?
We all agree that the Bible is where we find truth. We believe that there are core truths that all Christians affirm that are found in the ancient creeds of the church.
And on non-core topics, we believe that there are interpretations of the Scripture where we can lovingly disagree. We humbly welcome discussion and varying viewpoints as we seek to pursue our understanding of the timeless truths of the Bible.
How goes your walk?
We have found that following Jesus is about experiencing a vibrant, life-giving, walk with God. We love God. We love each other. And we have a passion for serving this world and helping others in their journey toward more deeply loving God and others. It matters to us how the Lord is at work within and among us, and how we are responding to Him. We share our gifts with each other and look for ways to help others.
