Reaching Our Neighbors Here



The world is not as it should be, and we invite you to come together with us to change it. There are thousands of people in our local communities who are experiencing significant life challenges: trauma, injustice, job loss, financial crisis, food shortage, homelessness, relational brokenness, etc. We believe God invites us to join Him in his restorative, transformational work to not only impact the lives of the people around us but to transform us more into His likeness. Join one of our dynamic serving teams - communities of life transformation - and we can demonstrate the love of Jesus to the marginalized, poor, or powerless in our community.

Communities of life transformation are marked by love, vulnerability, belonging, attunement, and courage. We nurture these communities by cultivating these values:

God’s love is core to His identity and our own. It is God’s calling card, and it is what God calls us to. It is kind, compassionate, merciful, and just. It is powerful. It pierces hearts, breaks down barriers, and lifts people out of the depths of despair. It shines bright in darkness and offers hope and courage in the face of adversity.

We’ve all experienced insecurity, shame, or feelings of weakness. Exploring and leaning into the broken areas of our own life leads to healing and greater empathy for others.

God designed us for deep relationships, to be fully known and fully loved. He himself exists in relationship - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - and places us in a beautiful, relational community - the church. Relational community recognizes, encourages, sharpens, and celebrates diversity of person, thought, skills, abilities, and giftings. It says we're in it together.

Tuning into God’s work in and around us requires a humble posture of listening and learning. While we desire to grow in our expertise at caring for the vulnerable, poor, and marginalized, who we are becoming in Christ is more important than what we are doing for him. We want to be a community guided by the Holy Spirit so that we are awakened to God’s purposes.

Following God can be risky and hard. It requires courage to challenge assumptions, act according to the Spirit, and courageously step out of our comfort zones.
