What Members Say Add your voice

  • I came to this church during a difficult period of my life. I was welcomed, supported immediately and appreciated when I offered to help out. Now I've been here for almost six years and I'm extremely involved and so happy to be a member of this community! We have lots of fun sharing times at church, at each other's homes and out in the community. We do LOTS of external ministries! We are prayer-focused and we encourage everyone who wants to participate in worship, education, leadership or any other type of involvement to come join in. But those who prefer to stay laid back are respected for that also. Come give us a try; I'm sure you'll be glad you did!
