Mission, Values, and Goals

How we discerned our values and our mission statement:

Through a process of one to one conversations, house meetings, and with a vote of the vestry and the approval of the 2015 annual meeting of the parish, Holy Communion discerned that we share three values as a congregation.


Welcome, Diversity, and Community

These values arose from listening to one another, hearing the themes that arose when we asked ourselves the questions: “What brought you to Holy Communion?” “What keeps you at Holy Communion?” and “What do you want your neighbors to know about Holy Communion?” Again and again we heard these three values articulated: Welcome, Diversity and Community.

We decided to write those values into our mission statement, and to set goals for our congregation based on the values.


Holy Communion Mission Statement

The Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion is a welcoming and diverse community seeking to walk in the way of Jesus and to reveal Christ’s reconciling love in our city, nation, and world.
