A Place for Worship
We meet together to focus our attention on God, giving praise and receiving blessings and inspiration, and spiritual refreshment. We hope this is what you experience here.
A Place for Learning
To us, studying the Bible is vital because it not only informs us intellectually, but also guides us spirituality, a Book that is alive and relevant to life today.
A Place for Enrichment
For every person at every age level we offer a wealth of opportunities — programs and ministries for children, youth and adults which fill the church calendar. You can be sure that in this kaleidoscope of activities there’s more than one place where you can contribute and be personally enriched.
A Place for Friendship
Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian community. That’s why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds among the members of our church family — bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another.
We’re happy to have recently installed a stair lift enabling everyone to have safe, easy access from the main parking lot to our upper level in order to attend services and events.
A Place for Service
Just as Jesus Christ came “not to be served, but to serve …,” we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within the church family and in the wider community. We look forward to serving you, and we hope to see you again
