Friends and Members:
Mountain View is an ecumenical church affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), The United Church of Christ, and The United Methodist Church.
Our services are at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday. Please come join us.
It is important to the Mountain View community to reach beyond our congregation, expressing our love in the world.
Pastor Tracy’s call to ministry is rooted in Micah 6:8: “What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.”
Pastor Wayne’s personal theology is best described as progressive and process orientated and his approach to ministry is based on 1 John 4:16: “So we have known and believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness on the day of judgment, because as he is, so are we in this world.” and John 13:34-35: “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
In Amy’s own words: The Apostle Paul saw clearly that manifesting the Kindom of God requires the gifts of everyone. Absolutely everyone! He states this explicitly in 1 Corinthians: 12:12-13: “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were baptized into one body.” I am fortunate to serve a ministry of radical hospitality that advocates for the inclusion of people of all mental, physical, and behavioral abilities within every aspect of society. For honoring the sacred worth and dignity of each person is not just a nice idea, but the key principle of social justice Jesus proclaimed when he commanded us to love our neighbors as ourselves. As a WISE (Welcoming, Inclusive, Supportive, Engaged) Congregation for Mental Health and Inclusion, we at Mountain View United Church strive to fulfill this commandment in all we do. It is a joy welcome people of all abilities and gifts into our faith community.
