Mission and Vision
To glorify God, and by the power of the Holy Spirit,
provide opportunities for all people to know, love,
and follow Jesus Christ.
We pray we live this mission through the following Vision for Ministry:
to gather as a community of believers who are passionate about Jesus Christ;
to glorify God through Christ-centered worship, which is central to our corporate life; and,
to grow the Kingdom of God through opportunities for education, service, mission, fellowship and witness as the life-renewing Spirit leads us.
We worship together each Sunday at 10:30 am, offering a traditional service on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month and a more contemporary one on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.
Sunday School classes for all ages meet before worship at 9:15 am and nursery care is available. Be sure to join us for lunch after worship on the 5th Sunday of the month!
