 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
