Continuing the work of Jesus

Continuing the work of Jesus

Continuing the work of Jesus

Jesus is our leader, teacher, and savior. Our creed is to do what He did. We are not always sure what that entails, but our effort is always in that direction. Our witness tends to be conveyed more by actions than by words.

Peacefully

Peacefully

Peacefully

Our living is peaceful living. We strive to create reconciliation in the world, an end to violence and war, an establishment of justice. We do our best to repair the ravages that have been wrought on our environment and on our fellow human beings.

Simply

Simply

Simply

We endeavor to resist the "idolatry of things" and free ourselves of accumulation, the better to work in love and peace. Historically, our traditions have used words like nonconformity, plainness, and simplicity to indicate this commitment.

Together

Together

Together

We worship, grow spiritually, and act in community. We study the Bible together, modestly striving to discern the will of God for us. This togetherness includes an active effort to work with those of different faiths in building bridges of understanding.

Shalom Community Church

Without exception, all who share this vision are welcome to participate in the full life of the church. We value the creative tension and the strength that result from sharing differences in beliefs within the community and we are committed to pilgrimage peacefully, simply, together.

Creation Care 2016

Paul Versluis

Growing up on the farm, I didn’t know the earth was sacred.  We sprayed chemicals on the orchards, we drained the wetlands, we dug large holes and filled them with our junk.  If a cow misbehaved, it would be kicked.  I was taught to worship the creator but not creation.  The soil, the trees, the plants and the animals, the water, wind and air, even women and children were all under our dominion.  We would preserve the soul but not the natural world because we thought God was going to destroy the world.

Righting Relationships

Joy Versluis

The writers of the series “Do You See This Woman?” focus on how Miriam and Deborah (and Jael) can be a model for us in the church. They write: “These women represent the kinds of full participations possible for women in the church when individuals move toward right relationships.” In particular, we can look at Deborah for exemplifying stellar leadership, a true “example of a righteous and faithful leader.”
