The Stanley Mission Statement


 

At Stanley Church, we value questions, respect differences and warmly welcome people of any race, marital circumstance, sexual orientation, and theological tradition.  We are a Protestant church democratically governed by our members, working ecumenically to establish justice and peace for all people.

A united world, embracing, loving, supporting and serving all of God's creations.

To advocate for all through boundless inclusion, joyful noise, daring service and a living Spirit!

We are a church of inclusion.  No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

We are a church of enthusiastic worship.  All are invited to share in a worship service that is communal, participatory, experiential, energetic and limitless!

We are a church dedicated to service.  We are here to serve, not to be served.  It is through service, that you are served!

We are a church that advocates for social justice.  We seek peace and justice for all people.

We are a Green church.  We strive in all aspects to protect and restore the earth.

 

 

Jesus tells us, love God with all your heart and soul and mind and your neighbor as yourself. Inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus, we gather as a community where questioning, listening, and learning lead us toward faith and understanding.

 

We promise to support each other’s relationship with God and encourage each individual’s calling. We strive to be compassionate and minister to those in need. We work to right injustice and advance peace. We seek to be good stewards of God’s gifts. We endeavor to live our faith both inside and outside our doors.

 

All are invited to participate in the life of the church as we celebrate God’s grace through prayer and worship, music and education, service and fellowship.
