Vibrant Faith Ministries

We are convinced that faith is formed by the power of the Holy Spirit through personal, trusted relationships, often in our own homes. Our experience is that the church is a living partnership between the ministry of the congregation and the ministry of the home. More and more we are seeing that where Christ is present in faith, home is church, too. As we think about our personal journeys and watch those of others we notice that faith is caught more than it is taught. It has also become clear to us that if we want Christian children and youth, we need Christian adults.

With this framework in mind we follow Four Keys for Practicing Faith:

Caring Conversations are the basis for those personal, trusted relationships.

Devotions are away to practice the presence of God through the Word of God.

Service to one’s neighbor is a calling that expresses the love for others that God has placed in us and gives us moments to be faithful to that calling.

Rituals and Traditions create patterns of behavior that reinforce the presence of God and communicate meaning for our lives.

This is the Vibrant Faith Framework that informs our ministries and our lives and which places Jesus Christ at the center of all we do in this congregation and in the homes of those who are connected to us.
