To worship God, lead people to Jesus, and create community through the love and teachings of Jesus

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you, and surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. --Matthew 28: 19-20 (NIV)


Welcome Back to In-Person Worship!

We are excited to announce that in-person worship service has resumed.

Safety Is Our Priority

Worship will look a little different for a while as we strive to keep everyone safe. We will operate in accordance with CDC, state and local protocols regarding COVID-19 safety. Indeed, we will go beyond the CDC, state, and local protocols during Phase 1 of our church reopening. At this time, we will have the 10:00 a.m. worship service in-person at the church. We will evaluate our guidelines as the CDC, state, and local guidelines continue to change. Hopefully, when more restrictions are lifted, we will lift our restrictions as well.
