The Fellowship seeks to provide opportunity for spiritual growth through a deeper appreciation of the Christian heritage and an understanding of the insights of the world's great religious faiths. Our membership is open to all.
In the spirit of divine unity, our church continues to build,
hoping that those who join with us will find their burdens shared and their joys multiplied.
We are a non-creedal church though we are composed of a number of individuals who come to us from creedal churches. In fact, as an inter-denominational church you can typically find individuals with experience as Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Baptists, Roman Catholics,
Episcopalians, Buddhists, and non-churched individuals in our pews.
These same people can have and do have a wide-range of beliefs. You will find a fairly conservative theology and a fairly progressive theology sitting right next to one another in the pew. You will find these same people sitting in Bible or topical studies, sharing opinions and views, differing widely in beliefs and allowing, tolerating, understanding, accepting the other persons views as being true for them, and therefore acceptable.
We are a church that not only accepts and tolerates differences
but encourages this diverse group to come together.
It is an incredible mix.
We also have a number of seekers who come to us from fairly fundamental or conservative churches who are looking for a different way of faith expression. We encourage seeking; and while not always providing answers,
will help in the process of thinking and discovering.
God is tolerant, loving and compassionate.
Jesus is a manifestation and divine reflection, revealing the nature of and a way to God.
We are co-creators of life with God
and as such are asked to be loving and compassionate and tolerant of all, including ourselves.
Diversity is a good thing.
This Fellowship is firmly committed to sharing resources. We designate 10% of our budget to Benevolence giving. We regularly select recipients from a broad range of opportunities: local, regional, national, and international. The idea of service, giving and ministry is an important part of our community. We value our work as the hands of G!d in the world and take this responsibility seriously. We are presently supporting;
In addition, we have special benevolence offerings every quarter coupled with communion.
We would like to invite you to join with us as
God calls us into Beauty, Truth, and Harmony.
The Norris Religious Fellowship is an interdenominational community church which has grown from the desire of people with varied religious backgrounds to share experiences & to search together for spiritual enrichment.
Its idea is not to bind by creed but to weld through love of God and love of everyone. In the spirit of the earliest Christian church it has sought to serve God
through serving the wide town
and country community of which it is a part.
