Our vision is to invite all regardless of spiritual, economic or cultural background to join us in our mission to know Christ, grow in Christ and share Christ’s love. This vision is rooted in our belief that for a church to have relevance in today’s world, we must extend Christ’s love to not only our congregation but to our neighbors and the wider Elkhart community. We’re called to reach out to address the emerging needs of the surrounding neighborhoods. We invite all to know Christ through our actions and by expanding our vision in new directions. Classic and modern worship services, inspiring music, contemporary issue discussions, guest speakers on immigration and its impact on Elkhart County, and children’s programming enrich our lives. We have offered fellowship in a brewpub and provide meeting rooms to local clubs and organizations. One of our most successful endeavors is at Beardsley Elementary School where we have tutored, mentored and provided school supplies for their students for over 10 years. Our multiple mission programs give us an external focus. We are looking for new and different opportunities to get involved with other congregations, our neighbors and those in need.
We seek a compassionate visionary to lead us, one with the ability to develop worship content and programs to meet evolving cultural changes; a teacher/preacher who has a heart touched by God’s grace and love, and hands that are ready to serve the church with energy and imagination; who remains open to new ideas and approaches ~ yet values the familiar; who can identify opportunities to develop and is an advocate for the future of our church.
We are a congregation of 200 members inviting all to know Christ, grow in Christ and share Christ’s love.
