church1 We are pleased to have you "visit" our church.  We would love to have you follow up by visiting us in person.  Our mission is to "introduce people to Jesus Christ, to help them become faithful followers of Him, and to equip them to share His love with others," and we'd be glad to help you in any part of that journey into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.  Feel free to browse around, contact us through the contact page, or call the church office for more information.  And, of course, you would be most welcome to join us on Sunday mornings in worship.  We have three services: traditional services are at 8:15 & 11 am, and there is a contemporary service in between at 9:30 am. Sunday School for all ages also occurs at 9:30 am.  For the most up to date information about events and activities, use the Facebook link at the bottom of the page.  You can also find a link to our Twitter page below as well.
