As they share life together at the corner of Tuckaseegee and Parkway, neighbors who are part of The Family Tree will engage together to create, pray, and welcome. In creating, they will give expression to the vibrancy of the work of the Spirit in Enderly Park. The days of life together at The Family Tree will be framed by prayer and by the practice of individual and corporate spiritual disciplines. And, members of The Family Tree will welcome members, neighbors, visitors, and guests to join in the Good News that God is working out in the neighborhood. The hope is that in creating, praying, and welcoming together, the rooted discipleship of The Family Tree will be a movement of goodness and unity in Enderly Park.
We take joy in God’s creation and find meaning, beauty, and inspiration when we engage with the Holy Spirit in acts of creativity. We choose to get our hands dirty – playing in dirt, paint, clay, glue, and textiles. Co-creation, with God and neighbor, gives strength to our inner voice and allows us to express our faith in deep and innovative ways.
