Welcome! We are so glad that you are checking out our website. Whatever your circumstances,we hope this site will help you to see what we desire to be... a community of people whose lives have deeply changed by God's grace and truth.

Is your week the same every week? Do you feel just a bit empty? Are you thirsty for more? Are you looking for that feeling of community that is so often missing in this busy world of ours?
We have good news for you! We have coffee. Its free. Really its free! We have more good news. You can wear jeans or a suit. It's up to you. If you have purple hair or no hair you will fit in.
Even more good news! We provide practical biblical teaching that you can take home with you in our adult education and Sunday School classes. We can help you to start filling the empty places in your life with the positive life changing experience of our living Lord.
If you are not a believer, that's ok. We were all there at one point in our journey. In our congregation we have people at all stages of the journey. We would like to come along side you in your growth. Maybe we are not your parents' church (unless you liked that, then maybe we are). We are a great family and we like to have a good time. From the monthly dish to pass dinners to services at a convenient time for you- Saturday 5:30pm and Sundays at 10:30am.
The point is, you are welcome here, and you are invited! We look forward to seeing you!
