What to Expect

What are services like?
The service is very "laid back" yet also traditional in the sense that we use the Methodist hymnal as the basis for our worship.

What is the community like?
The church community is GREAT!!! We may be a smaller church but we have folks from all generations coming together to worship and it's a beautiful thing.

What if I'm not a Christian?
So what??? Our goal is not to judge... Our goal is to teach and we would like to have that opportunity.

    What can vistors expect??? Friendly folks!!! My wife and I have been attending this church only a short time and were made to feel right at home from day one!!! We really like the feel of the small church setting as it makes you feel like you matter and that you are not going to a concert and watching the big screens... Plus, as a methodist church goes, I must say we have some of - if not THE BEST cooks come pot luck time!!!
