The Church Council has adopted a theme for our congregation in 2015: 
“Led by the Spirit.” This theme will help us remember that we are led by the Holy Spirit as we engage in the call process, in outreach, community building, and effective fiscal management in 2015—all part of our mission to bring in, build up and send out disciples for Jesus Christ.
