The Love Committee

Updated: Nov 13


Mission

Because we are committed to living our Christian faith by confronting injustice and standing in solidarity with oppressed peoples, the mission of the Love Committee is to provide members with tools, resources and opportunities for conversation to better understand and eradicate inequality and discrimination in ourselves and our community. Love and compassion are our guiding principles.

Vision

Our vision for our church is that it is a fully inclusive community that welcomes all with unconditional love, affirming and celebrating the diversity of God’s kingdom.  We are motivated by compassion to make our church a safe space for everyone to grow and learn to love intentionally.
