Merta Our Philosophy:
God’s Grace Is in the Gray.
We believe that much of life is not black or white.
We see ourselves as both saints and sinners.
We hold fast to the spirit of the Law and the promises of the Gospel.
We worship using a liturgy that emphasizes Word and Sacrament.
We identify as living in the world, but not being of the world.
Many accuse our gray approach as wishy-washy.
We see it as grace, God’s amazing grace.
God wants all people to be saved; therefore
all are welcome in our congregation:
young or old, black or white, rich or poor, gay or straight,
married or single, native born or immigrant, full-figured or lean,
and our concern is not your past, but your future,
a future in relationship with God.
