As we look to be a congregation that lives all of life in light of the gospel, we know there are areas of inconsistency and needed growth. Below are some resources to help us growing in being a community of faith commissioned by Christ.

“The tune of radical individualism has been playing in our ears at full volume for decades. We are dancing to the music with gusto. And it is costing us dearly.” Joseph Kellerman, When The Church Was a Family
“The marginalization of community within the church and culture has not come from conviction but from apathy and isolation brought on by sin. Isolation is our response to sin. Community is our response to reconciliation.” Brad House, Community
