We are a family. This means we are absolutely “for” each other, not against one another. Families have an attentive attitude towards engaging with, and helping their kin. Families work together and problem solve together. As a family, we are interested and invested in the well being of our family unit; we’re all in!
We believe in the “work of the many,” not the few. This ties into our view of each other as family. We don’t make it one person's responsibility to fix/resolve issues.
When held in the correct posture, service is healing, and not wounding. We want the position of service within our church body to be held in a healing posture, and not a wounding one.
We foster kinship and care through our serving practices. Creating opportunities and space to think about each other holistically, rather than solely as a function, or asset to be utilized.
We live into being ministers of reconciliation. Serving is simply another way we worship, it’s all holy!
