An Inclusive congregation


In response to the divisive aspects of our cultural and political life, we as a congregation reaffirm our commitment to our Welcoming Statement: 

We at Shalom Community Church strive to fulfill a vision of shalom, to embody the love, compassion and justice of Jesus in our personal and community journeys. Without exception, all who share this vision are welcome to participate in the full life of the church. We value the creative tension and the strength that result from sharing differences in beliefs within the community and we are committed to pilgrimage simply, peacefully, together.


Our emphasis on community and peacemaking stem from a shared heritage of both the Church of the Brethren and Mennonite denominations. 

As well, we embrace within our community active participants from a variety of faith origins and perspectives who have found a place among us. 


The story of our quilt


Quilts have long been significant in Mennonite and Church of the Brethren culture and for many of us as individuals. Our quilt has deep meaning for us as a congregation telling a number of important stories of who we are and who we are becoming.
