Mission: MISSION AND CORE VALUES Mission StatementWe are a Christian community of God's people growing:Broader through Love and AcceptanceWarmer through CommunityStronger through WorshipDeeper through Spiritual Growth, andLarger through Faith-in-Action.Core ValuesLove and Acceptance - We welcome, respect, and value diversity by providing a place for honest, authentic relationships where we can be real and accepted. We offer an inclusive, unconditional, loving environment where those who are hurting, frustrated, and confused can find guidance and encouragement as we travel our shared spiritual path.Community - Archwood is a "rainbow" of people from all walks of life. We experience a depth and breadth of community that is rare and precious. As we celebrate our diversity together through worship, outreach, and fellowship, God blesses us with unity. Linked together we are God's instruments to strengthen the congregation and to reach beyond church walls.Worship - Worship is central to Archwood's existence. It is the "living spring" from which Love and Acceptance, Community, Spiritual Growth and Faith-in-Action flow. Our worship services are inclusive Christian experiences where we explore and celebrate God's mystery, and open ourselves to the Spirit as we seek to understand and live according to the teachings of Jesus. We come together as a congregation celebrating God's goodness and grace, and seeking encouragement and direction for the challenges in our daily lives.Spiritual Growth - The people of Archwood represent a wide variety of spiritual traditions, and we invite and support all people on a journey of spiritual discovery. Rather than just joining a church and going through the motions, we desire to experience God and grow spiritually. We believe that to be involved is to grow. Opportunities for spiritual growth include worship services, small groups, educational programs for all ages, retreats, service projects, fellowship, and Bible studies.Faith-in-Action - We are a church for people who want to stretch themselves and put their faith into practice. We believe that God has given every person spiritual gifts and we demonstrate a servant's heart by seeking opportunities to do ministry as part of our spiritual development. We are encouraged to take personal ownership of our church and to serve the church, its members, and the community. We strive to do ministry and service that will matter today, tomorrow, and for eternity.
