All Angels’ is committed to Christ, each other, and the greater good of the city to which we are called. Our strengths lie in the rich, multi-generational community reflected in our house churches, a spirit of meaningful volunteerism, an elevation of the arts, a playful sense of fun, and a culture that regards children and youth as full participants in worship and ministry. Our congregation reflects different life and socioeconomic experiences, and we long to live and worship together as a single body. Despite staff transition, we have an active congregation, including both newcomers and some who have committed to All Angels’ for decades.
After significant clergy and staff transitions, we are exploring our history and culture. We perceive a sense of spiritual narcissism. We value diversity, but our populations struggle to intermingle and demonstrate deep fellowship as much as we profess. We have long excelled at conflict avoidance; we have not often discussed difficult issues in fully transparent and healthy ways, including human sexuality, racism, wealth disparity, and leadership dysfunction. The pandemic has contributed to loneliness and lack of unity that impact our outreach. Our interim clergy have served faithfully without meeting many in person, and our community can feel fragmented.
