About Us

We are men, women and children of God. For over 300 years, we have come together in worship to celebrate God’s love through His Son Jesus. We come together in prayer for the healing power of the Holy Spirit and in thanksgiving. We come together as a family, one who deeply cares for each other. We work for the needs of others.

We work and play side by side as we share fun and fellowship. We warmly welcome all visitors and prospective members of our Christian family. We hold close the Lord’s commandment to love and treat everyone with dignity and respect.
