Our Mission Statement: 

We are a people who encourage one another to celebrate our life in Christ. God changes ordinary life into abundant living, through our participation in worship, Christian education, fellowship and service.

We cultivate relationships among those of all ages, allowing us to rejoice with each other's joys and uphold and sustain one another during times of need.

We provide all people the opportunity to find and develop their God-given gifts.

We make the love of God real to our neighbors as we seek to live out the Scriptures and grow in our faith.

Through our doors all may find refuge and comfort in God's saving love and grace.
