We believe that a relationship with God is destined to change us. God opens our eyes to Christ’s presence in the people and places around us, draws our hearts into worship and relationship with other believers, and moves us to put our skills, resources and energies to work in blessing others. As we pray at the altar, “Deliver us from the presumption of coming to this Table for solace only, and not for strength; for pardon only, and not for renewal. Let the grace of this Holy Communion make us to…worthily serve the world in his name.”
