Our Mission

At The Church Within our primary desire is to promote a sense of community. The words of Jane Howard resonate with us: “Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” We call it a church, and find individuals and families quickly move from talking about “the church” or “your church” to “my/our church”. We seek to engage a sense of community through worship experiences, special programs, easy and informal fellowship, and outreach efforts that extend beyond our local geographical community. HIV/AIDS outreach, social justice advocacy, community gardening, support for people experiencing homelessness... for a small church, we do a lot of work! We value everyone's gift, be it time, talent, or treasure!
