All Church activities are currently suspended indefinitely.

Due to COVID-19 and the recommendations by local and federal officials, we are no longer operating at our regular capacity.  We will be updating the website more thoroughly in the coming days.  Please visit us again later in the week to stay more informed. In the meantime, we will extend the calling to everyone to continue to BE THE CHURCH. These are unique times for us.  Let us engage with the circumstances faithfully, responsibly, and with every effort to reflect the full love and grace of Jesus Christ.

Let us love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love our neighbors as ourselves.



Our Vision is to become a congregation where

"Jesus Frees, Relationships Matter, and Love Works."  


We invite you to join us in joyful worship, Christian study, friendly connection, and service to others all in the name of Jesus.
