Welcome

This is a medium size church (around 350 regular attendance each week) with rich and varied programs to offer. Our worship schedule includes two Sunday morning services—a Celebration service at 8:45 and a Traditional service at 11:15. In between the morning services, at 10:00 a.m., you will find a wide variety of Christian education and discipleship training opportunities. All of these services are centered in Scripture and our pastors seek to bring the message in an alive, vital way, that is relevant to the issues we face today.
Vital small groups, varied short-term adult classes on Sunday mornings, along with Christian education for children and youth, exciting youth programming on Sunday nights, and mission opportunities within our community, state and world wide are available for people who want to grow in their faith and discipleship and transform the world.

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.
