Cottage Meetings

A Cottage meeting is… a gathering of 15 people in homes and at church (or on Zoom)— for the purpose of talking about God's hopes for us and getting to know Pastor Kirsten and each other better.  Question is... "What would help your neighbor feel loved by God?"

Mission and Vision

Our Mission:

Making Jesus Known

Our Vision:

We believe God desires us to be a welcoming congregation called and sent by Jesus Christ to make disciples by bringing God’s love to one another, the community, and the world.

We seek to make disciples through…

Worship: The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God, giving Him our worship and praise. We strive to provide people with an accessible way to worship God, a comfortable place to bring friends, and a sensitive, creative community to which they can belong.


Reaching Out: Just as Jesus came “not to be served, but to serve…”, we seek to serve others. We strive to provide opportunities that involve people in mission with people who have specific human hurts and hopes.


Caring and Learning: Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship. To us, studying the Bible is vital because it not only instructs us intellectually, but also guides us spiritually. Learning its truths is a thrilling adventure. We strive to provide opportunities in which people may discover roots, place, and belonging.
