Rev. Lauren Ramseur
We, the members of Lynnhaven Colony Congregational Church, join together as a community of service for the purposes of worship, spiritual growth, and interacting with others as loving human beings, using the example set by Jesus as our guide. Although we are many members, we are one community. As such, we are called to love one another, to do justice, to offer freedom from oppression and to walk humbly in our understanding of God. We are an open and affirming church, embracing diversity and affirming the dignity of worth of every person. We welcome into full membership and participation in this community of service persons of every race, language, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, mental ability, socio-economic status, marital status, and faith backgroung. We welcome all people as they are, without reservation, to share in the full life, leadership, ministry and fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, and blessings for participation in our congregation. The ideals we hold most dear are expressed in the two greatest commandments ascribed to Jesus: to love God with all your being and to love your neighbor as yourself. By formally joining this congregational church, we pledge our time, talents and resources to support these ideals and this covenant.
