Mission, Vision, and Values

Our Mission

A caring presence in the heart of the Aspen Hill Community

Our Vision

To be a diverse community united together in the body of Christ. Listening and caring for the needs of the world, especially those affecting our neighbors; caring for the wellbeing and healing of our community;  caring about God’s creation and being good stewards of the resources we have been given; caring for each generation by providing formation that enriches our faith and helps to claim our gifts; and caring about God’s grace being known in the world, through our worship, actions, and love that is visible in the transformational experience felt when we are followers of Christ.

Our Values

Grounded in our response to the Baptismal Covenant and Great Commission, St. Mary Magdalene is committed to these core values:

Encountering People In the World
Bringing the love of Christ to a hurting world

Missionary Focus
Making Jesus Christ known with a missionary spirit that honors our diverse heritage, cultures, and traditions, and inspires everyone to continue and expand their relationship with Christ

Education and Leadership
Forming disciples, both lay and clergy, to be effective agents of God’s transformational love

Celebrating all of God’s Creation and Personhood
Being a welcoming and diverse community

Responsive Stewardship
Dedicating our abundant resources to support the mission of the Church
