In our life together as followers of Jesus Christ, we go forth—from serving God in worship to serving God in the world. As one communion prayer puts it, As this bread is Christ’s body for us, send us out to be the body of Christ in the world.

By the grace of God, the love of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, we seek to become more effective and intentional in reaching out to our neighbors locally and globally with a deepening commitment each year of spiritual, financial, and human resources

Empowered by the Holy Spirit,
we reach out to share God’s saving love and grace
with people in Bristol and throughout the world.
