The congregation says about itself: "This congregation is known for its strong bonds of love. We are very welcoming and friendly and open to new ideas and diversity. We are a giving church who values contributing to the under-served in the community and beyond. We are supportive of one another and positive thinkers, We have a long history of dedication and working together. We like to think of ourselves as 'fun, not boring church people.' We have a sense of joy."
The congregation says about itself: "Like most churches today our congregation is aging and has only 2-3 young families. our challenge is to increase financial health because congregational giving is stagnating due to fixed incomes and financial restraints. Another challenge that we face is rejuvenating our core group of volunteers who are aging and would like to have new energy to revitalize our many ministries."
