We are a loving and caring church family, committed to fulfilling Christ's Great Commission by evangelizing the lost and discipling the saved in our surrounding community and to the ends of the earth.  We strive to glorify God by creating a mission-minded, loving community that is committed to God's word, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and focused on reaching people and their families for Christ.  We do this by providing relational, authentic ministries where people are free to experience God in a real, life-changing way.


You’ll find a friendly and inviting atmosphere where you will feel cared for and accepted.  Dress is casual:  our pastor usually preaches in blue jeans.  We begin each Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. with an informal breakfast fellowship where friends catch up while enjoying good food.  Worship begins at 10:00 a.m.  Children, youth, and adults join to praise God through relevant, contemporary music, and our pastor leads us to encounter the truth of God's word in a meaningful way.  During the worship time, younger children participate in a time designed specifically for them where they interact with biblical truths in a way that they can understand.
