About us

Our mission is to

connect - people to Christ

build - a faith community through intentional discipleship

serve - God in the world

We gather on Sundays at 09:15 am for a traditional worship experience.

Children are welcome in worship!

Access to the sanctuary is easy via the ramp!

On Sundays we have Christian Education for your children. It is a time to engage with the Bible story in a one-room class.
