“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and then do that thing. Because what the world needs is people who are alive.” ~Howard Thurman

Each new person who walks through the doors of one of our churches is a blessing
and an opportunity for us to share our gifts of ministry.
Ours is a faith with the power to save and transform lives,
to help people grow in their capacity to love and in their commitment
to serve the cause of goodness and healing in this world.
It is too sacred an opportunity for us to miss.
~Rev. Thom Belote
