  1. Act Well Your Part – Our community involves participants with a wide range of beliefs and ideas. We encourage open dialogue, but require that participants remain courteous and respectful at all times.
  2. There are no small parts – Everyone is valued in our community. Encourage others and build each other up. You have gifts and talents that others can grow from, as well as they are just as capable of helping you grow.
  3. This community is meant to be a positive experience for anyone who chooses to participate. We encourage you to think before you speak. Is it necessary? Is it kind? Is it true? Share with one another as Christ would have you share.
