As joyful servants, we bear the heart of Jesus in these four concrete ways:
We Feed - Building upon a long-standing relationship with Decatur Cooperative Ministry, and specifically Hagar's House, as well as Meals on Wheels, we are committed to feeding the hungry, homeless and battered. We also feed spiritually, meaning that when we gather for worship, God's table of grace is open for all people to be fed with the life of God.
We Regenerate - Recognizing that the ecological future of the planet is at stake and that paying attention to environmental stewardship in the global north is good news for persons in the global south, we commit to teach and practice "being green" in all that we do.
We Resettle - Recognizing that the Jesus of the scriptures made welcoming the stranger and the refugee mandates for being the people of God, we will work with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and their Georgia agency, Inspiritus, to actively resettle refugee families.
We Welcome - The church is not ours; it is God's. Rather than saying that we have a mission, better to say that God has a mission and God has a church. We will foster healing, wholeness and joy for all people, particularly through becoming and living as a Reconciling in Christ community.
