Our Mission Statement
Our relationship with God and each other strengthens us,
and helps make the world a better place. We welcome
and include everyone into congregational life.
Our Vision Statement
We seek to make this community a reflection of God’s plan,
to be a safe haven for ALL who seek peace, justice, freedom; a place where differences are celebrated and accepted as gifts; where new ideas and new ways are not feared but rather embraced as we learn to expand our hearts so that ALL are welcome.
We affirm that this includes persons of ALL sexual orientations, gender identities, races, abilities, ages, economic circumstances and talents.
Jesus knew no boundaries. He reached out to all people, honoring ALL in their diversity. We celebrate the richness this brings to our church.
We are called to be a part of a ministry that welcomes and includes ALL, honors the gifts of each, and recognizes that ALL receive God’s abundant grace.
Acknowledgement Of Indigenous
“For thousands of years Indigenous peoples have walked on this land in their own territory. Their relationship with the land is at the centre of their lives. We acknowledge the Attawandaron and Ojibwe/Chippewa First Nations and their stewardship of this land. We acknowledge also our responsibility as Treaty Members, living in the Huron Tract (Treaty 29, from 1827). May we all live with respect on this land, and live in peace and friendship.”
