Scripture Focus    Colossians 3: 12-17

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as you have been forgiven, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of God dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of Jesus, giving thanks to God through him.

Statement of Faith in Community

God calls us together, with our different gifts, our different ideas, our different tastes.
God calls us together, to share what makes us special, to build each other up, 

to serve each other in love. 

God calls us together, knowing that we are all needed if creation is to be whole.
God calls us together, to sing, to pray, to listen, to speak,

to be refreshed so that we can go out and serve. 

God calls us together in the name of Jesus. Rev Gord
