  Thank you for visiting our website!

 We are committed to living out of the love of Jesus Christ.  Our simple mission statement is significant.  It reminds us that we are all children of God, no matter our age.  Our mission activates our faith, by sending us into the world to be a blessing. We believe that the love of God is the greatest of all gifts, and we seek to follow Christ and share this love with all we meet.  We hope you will embrace this mission too.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest.

When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age



  • Christmas Services

    Peace of Christmas Service Wednesday, December 21 at 7:00 pm. This is the time of year with the longest nights, and many people appreciate a quiet, meditative worship service that allows time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ.

    Christmas Eve Worship Service - 7:00 pm.  The wonder of Christmas will be seen and heard through the eyes of our children, through music and dance, message and candlelight.

    Christmas Eve Candlelight/Communion Service - 9:00 pm.  We come to the manger this night, to behold the birth once again.  Let the wonder of Christmas fill us anew with holiness and awe as we worship our Savior.

    New Year's Day Worship Service - 10:30 am.
