Please join us as we…
KNOW Christ as Savior, Lord and Friend
GROW in Christ through Worship, Bible Study, Prayer, and Christian Fellowship
GO in Christ’s name to proclaim the Good News of His love, care for the needy, and make Disciples of all.

We gather each Sunday to be renewed and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Gathering as a community of God’s people, we come just as we are – bringing our truest selves, our deepest struggles, our longings, our hopes, and even our despair. Together, we hold one another in authentic love. We practice open table communion, where all are welcome at God’s table. Come join us, come be fed, come be restored, come join with us in the journey of faith.
