Our Parish Mission Statement
In Living out our need to constantly praise God in our lives,
we commit ourselves to:
Find God in all creation.
Live lives that promote the spiritual enrichment of
all of God's people.
Be witnesses of Christ's Love and its place in our lives.
Share our time, talent and treasure with others.
My parish is composed of people like me.
I help to make it what it is.
It will be friendly, if I am friendly.
Its pews will be filled, if I help to fill them
My parish will do great work, if I work with my parish
It will make generous gifts to many just causes,
If I am a generous giver.
It will welcome other people to our worship and fellowship
If I invite and welcome them.
It will be a Church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith,
And a Church with a noble spirit,
If I am filled with these same qualities.
Therefore with the help of God,
I shall dedicate myself to the task
Of being all the things that I want my parish to be.
Bless our journey together, Lord God,
