To generously share God's love with everyone we meet


 Each week we gather in worship to glorify God.  Worship is at the heart of who we are as a church.  Through worship we come together as God's people to celebrate and praise God.  We sing praises to God and pray for people and situations here and around the world.  We receive support and encouragement for the week ahead.  From worship we go out and share God's love with everyone we meet.
We invite you to join us for worship services on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and stay for coffee fellowship following the service.

Christianity’s Family Tree

When I was younger, I was fascinated by world religions. Later, I even took college courses on world religions, and in seminary I spent a semester in Germany studying the same topic. Then it hit me. I don’t even know the timeline of my own religion, Christianity. Maybe I should learn that first. Since then I continue to explore the depths of how Christ’s love moves in the community. I have found that God truly works in mysterious ways!

You are going to love our next sermon series. Even if you already know a bit about the origin and beliefs of the various Christian denominations, you will be amazed at how the Spirit of God has moved in the lives of people throughout time. The Holy Spirit meets us where we are and supports us as we move on to where God wants us to be.

Allow God to speak to you in ways that will touch our heart. Christ’s love is personal enough that it can heal your soul, and it is universal enough that it can heal this great creation. Simply stated, it is a miracle.
