Worship brings us together,

renews our spirits, and sends us into the world refreshed and ready to live God’s love.

We’re always learning and growing

in God’s word and ways.


We have a heart for service

and lots of opportunities, like delivering food to neighbors in need.


Faith and fun come together

in Vacation Bible School.

We are a “Reconciling in Christ” congregation. We believe that the Good News of God’s grace is for all, regardless of age, abilities, physical and mental health, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, income or strength of faith. There is nothing we do, have done or will do, that can separate us from God. God makes no exceptions, nor do we. Come join us in praise, prayer and the work of our Lord!
