Beloved Community Notes

Are you interested in helping to shape and build a new intercultural community from the ground up. We are a church of Mexican and anglo leaders, with really great music, sophisticated peace theology, and a joyful approach to all of life, even in the midst of hard times (because there is always love). We’re very small; that can feel strange to folks who might be new to this. But consider participating in this fresh intercultural exploration of faith, in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

Vision & Mission statement 

(adopted by Beloved Community in January as a result of our process with Rebeca and Fernando)

This church has lots of young people and also under-used grandparents! But very few children. Come help grow our children and youth program - a curriculum for "peace allies" is under development. But if you need family, baby-sitters, relationship connections, that's all ready right now. Come see what you think. It is a lovely, small, trust-worthy, joyful congregation!  :-)

***

¡Esta iglesia tiene muchos jóvenes y abuelos subutilizados! Pero muy pocos niños. Venga a ayudar a crecer nuestro programa para niños y jóvenes: se está desarrollando un plan de estudios para "aliados de la paz". Pero si necesita familiares, niñeras, relaciones de pareja, ya está todo listo. Ven a ver lo que piensas. ¡Es una congregación encantadora, pequeña, digna de confianza y alegre! :-)
