Who We Are

Through worship, shared story, nurture and service, we seek to live out the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our common life is devoted to:
• Worship of God in the Presbyterian tradition, Reformed and always Reforming according to the Word of God
• Christian education and the passing along of the stories and tradition of our faith to children and adults
• Nurturing our members, friends and neighbors through fellowship and the ministry of prayer, and
• Serving God by serving others within the church family and the community at large.

Our Services

What are services like?
Traditional in liturgy, Biblically based teaching, laughter encouraged, and love shared.

What is the community like?
A friendly, loving community that provides a safe place for people to risk new ministries, and be creative in sharing the Gospel with the community around us.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are welcome to come and hear the good news of the Gospel, learn what it means to be a disciple of Jesus today, and why the hope God's promise is important in today's dark and despairing world. You will find fellowship, caring, and a family to connect with in a time when so many of us feel all alone.
