Christ did not cast people out of the church for their beliefs; he introduced new ways of thinking about faith through parables and metaphors, and reached out to the outcast. Even now, the true strength of Christianity is our ability to respect one another across denominations and discuss a purposeful, meaningful life from a variety of life’s perspectives. You don’t have to leave your brain at the door to be a Christian. It can actually be enlightening.

We have a mission of doing exactly that at Hawker Church, taking a lead to address problems ranging from homelessness to lack of food for low-income people. We live our faith to serve others.

 

Part of that faith means leaving the world a little better than you found it. This, in essence, is our stewardship perspective, covering not just financial giving but the contributions of time and talents to make a difference in the world.

 



Finally, we extend an open welcome to anyone who wants to be part of our community, not just anyone who shares the same beliefs. Our commitment to diversity, in all its forms, means that many of our members have come from other churches and denominations where they felt unwelcome. Like the Pilgrims who escaped persecution and prejudice to form the first congregational churches in the new world, we understand. We’re a congregational church too.
