Is God calling you here?
Join us as we foster a church with a radically different state of affairs.
Three-fold Commitments of Threshold Partners
Regular worship attendance. Each week we gather together to praise and worship God. Worship offers an opportunity to encounter God anew in community. When new visitors come it is important that we are present to welcome and invite them into our midst. We ask that you make a commitment to attend worship regularly.
Generosity in Giving. This church is possible because of the gifts of those who make up the community. No matter what your gift, we ask that you discern how you might contribute to building up and sustaining this community. Your gifts of time, talent and treasure are needed here. What do you have to offer? Threshold partners will be asked to fill out a commitment card each year. Please consider a financial commitment as well as how you might give of your time and talents.
Witness. When we live in the ways of Jesus, we become witnesses. Our members are asked to witness to the transformative love of Christ, here and in the world. In what ways is God calling you to change? How can you help change the world? As you live in the ways of Christ, we ask that you witness to the larger community your commitment to this family of faith. Share the gift of this place whenever you can, so that we may grow and serve the needs of those who also seek a radically different church home. In the words of St. Francis, “Use words when necessary.”
