As a church, we pledge ourselves to certain values and priorities (as we promise in our Baptismal Covenant). We as individuals and as a congregation pledge to be about the things captured by the acronym S.W.E.E.P. Our goal is to monitor our follow through in each area – so that we actually “do” what we’ve “pledged ourselves to do.”
Because we promise to “Seek and serve Christ in all persons,” we offer Service.
Because we promise to “Continue in the breaking of bread and in the prayers,” we offer Worship.
Because we promise to “Continue in the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship,” we offer life-long formation and Education.
Because we promise to “Proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ,” we offer Evangelization.
Because we promise to “Strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being,” we offer Pastoral Care.
