Our Team

Pastor Sarah

As United Methodists, we believe we cannot separate our personal spiritual practice and social justice. We believe our faith calls us to engage and seek to transform the world with justice and peace.

You may not know it, but our community has bankers, and business execs, doctors, teachers, environmental scientists, community activists, therapists, and civil employees. We are making an impactful difference in our community through our Methodist witness.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for God. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what God wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. (Romans 12:1-2 The Message)
