We are GLAD you stopped by!

We designed this section of our website to be very easy for you to get everything you need. We hope that it answers all your questions and that you will decide to come visit us this Sunday or anytime!

We are here to help introduce people to God’s love. A love that is unselfish, undeserved, but oh so real and powerful! It is truly amazing what can happen when we learn to love each other the way God intended.

Why Belong to a Church?

Life is hard. Sometimes it just downright stinks. The husbands and wives, sons and daughters of this church know that having a Church “community” or Church “family” that they can turn to in times of need makes getting through life a LOT easier. Not only that, but when times are good, we can spend time learning to be better people, to love each other better, try and hold each other accountable and challenge each other to be the best people God intended us to be so that we might fulfill God’s purpose for our lives.
