Vision and Mission
In fall 2009, First United Church adopted the following vision statement and re-affirmed our mission statement.
The vision upholds the current image for our church in which we strive to live out the mission. It came about from congregational discernment and reflects the the kind of people we aim to be and become, led by the grace of God.
To be a community that welcomes all to explore their faith, as together we strive to become deeply committed Christians who reflect the Light of God in all aspects of their lives.
Our core values are reflected in the acronym L.I.G.H.T.
We will share the Love of God,
Inclusive of all people.
We will live with Gratitude and
be a place of Healing,
where all can explore their Talents in God.
The mission statement names what our church community exists to do.
