Rev. Eliza recently said we are:
""Hopeful that our witness brings hope to those who despair.
""Hopeful that we may embody, as a church, the perfect love that drives out fear, and become a place of safety for all of God's children.
""May we always be a church and a people of the Gospel, serving Christ as we serve our neighbors: the hungry, the homeless, the imprisoned, the despairing, the fearful, the hurting, the abandoned."
