Our commitment to wholeness

We offer benefits and programs that foster the wholeness of our members by focusing on four key areas: spiritual, health, financial, and vocational. 


God created us whole, knows the ways in which we are broken, and desires us to be restored. We become more spiritually whole when we nurture our relationship with God through worship and prayer, and with others through fellowship and service.      


The health we have is a gift from God, and we honor God when we care for it by eating well, exercising often, preventing illness and injury, and cultivating loving relationships.


The more financially responsible we are, the greater our well-being. Financial stability reduces stress and allows us to care for ourselves and others. It frees us to be generous and faithful stewards of all we have received.


God gives us unique talents and abilities ― gifts meant to be used in service to others. Being well vocationally is to be a faithful steward of these gifts, developing and using them for good and faithful purposes.
