The church is wherever God's people are gathered;
Joining in praises and quiet in prayer,
The church is wherever God's people hold firmly
To love, and in loving ask God to be there.
The church is wherever the voices of children
Mingle with seniors and parents in song.
The church is inclusive, for all are embracing,
The people of God are invited along.
The church is a place where the broken find healing,
Quiet for hearts in a turmoil, distress.
The church is a place where our conflicts are managed
In caring compassion - with God's love to bless.
The church is called forward - God's vision is burning -
Light in the darkness and mountaintop high!
The church is community - stretching and yearning,
With voices that lift us and spirits that fly.
