Cura: Christian Life Community
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."
— Colossians 3:14
"Cura is about community, reflection, and spirituality. Cura is a second home with a welcoming family that is open to everyone, everything, and every idea. It is the process of looking at people beyond surface level and building strong relationships with others. Through thoughtful reflection of our struggles and blessings, we seek a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us, while figuring out how faith and God play a role in the process. "
— Cura member
The Mission of Cura is to "love one another as I have loved you" (John 13:34).
Cura Personalis (care of the whole person) stems from the desire to see and care for a person as God sees and cares for that person. We seek to listen more deeply to God and others.
Cura groups meet once a week for an hour, and have the opportunity to attend retreats and activities throughout the year.
