Our Services

What are services like?
We are a relaxed and welcoming congregation with times for announcements, children's messages, musical offerings, prayer requests, and a message from the pastor.

What is the community like?
We worship with about 100 people on Sunday mornings. The church is very welcoming and supportive. They like to be involved in missions like Habitat for Humanity, the CROP Walk for hunger, and the local Hope Clinic. They are very supportive of our children, our youth group, and the community we live in.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We reach out to seekers and welcome visitors. There is no pressure to be ready to make a commitment when you arrive but we support and nurture each individuals walk toward God at the timing and pace of their own (and God's) choosing.
