We welcome you to worship with us.

We hope you find our time together with God meaningful and that your spirit will be refreshed.

We are touching lives through Christ by reaching out, bringing in, lifting up and sending forth.

We are in inclusive congregation. As John Wesley said, "If your heart beats with my heart in love and loyalty to Jesus Christ, give me your hand."

Church can happen anywhere.  It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
