"He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well.
Is that not what it means to know me? declares the Lord."
Over the course of the next year, our church’s theme will be “one together.” The words come from our communion liturgy, a pledge we make to each time we come to the table: to worship and learn and serve together. “One with Christ, one with each other, and one in mission to all the world.”
This is our charge, and this is our calling.
We want to be a church dedicated to being one body, with one vision, one mission, unified together with one voice. That unity, that solidarity - that is what being the body of Christ truly means.
God puts us in community to do the hard work of becoming one, and that is work we are committed to doing. We lay disagreements aside, and focus on binding ourselves together in one accord.
As you consider your pledge for the following year, we hope that you will commit yourself to that vision. We are made one by working together in faith, and it is only by that commitment that this body can make an impact on this world.

On the ground in Houston, refugees fleeing Afghanistan are being relocated to our city.
Jesus calls us to welcome the stranger and care for those in need. Our Afghan brothers and sisters are arriving with no material possessions.
Help them rebuild their lives by putting together a Welcome Kit that will provide them with essentials and/or furnish and apartment.
