Our organizational values are expressed in our motto: Stewardship Connections with Integrity

Stewardship... We are responsible for physical resources that are entrusted by God to our stewardship. We should use resources in ways that are prudent, productive, and conserving.

Connections... As God's people, we fellowship with and belong to each other in connecting relationships. We should use our finances to invest in each other's lives and bear each other's burdens.

Integrity... We are called by God to be accountable to each other and to the church. We should exemplify relationships of honesty, trustworthiness, and responsiveness to others in all areas of life.
