Our programs and participation in our community bridges our faith to our deeds.
Personal and spiritual growth may be called humanity's ultimate goal. We offer multiple opportunities to explore many avenues to growth, from our Spiritual Growth Group to Sunday service and community volunteer opportunities.
We're proof that Church is far more than just a building. Church is community, one including but extending far beyond your fellow parishioners. Church is a special place that you carry with you daily, like a flashlight to light up the darkness.

We offer and embrace many ways to worship and express our faith beyond our weekly Sunday service.
Get closer to God by studying His word. The Bible teaches us how to worship and lift up the name of God so our lives can be changed through it.
Opportunities for Bible study with us include:
-Pastor's Bible Study on Zoom Tuesday nights
-Women’s Bible Study the second Monday of each month.
Jesus said that He came to the world not to be served but to serve. He told us to follow His example by serving and loving others as well. Using God’s gifts and opportunities the way He wants us to are excellent ways to worship Him.
Opportunities to do Good Deeds with us include:
-Social Justice Ministry
-Clothing for the Homeless
-Food Pantry support
Prayer is not just a way to send requests to God. It is the act of communicating with the Almighty. A fundamental element of this communication is praising and worshiping Him. We encourage you to explore prayer as part of your daily life.
Additional opportunities for Prayer with us include:
-Private Time in church
-Weeknight Spiritual Growth Groups
When we talk about praise and worship, we should also consider music. Sing praises to our Good Father with us, raise high the name of the Lord Jesus, and exalt the Spirit of God!
Celebrating God is also part of the milestone rituals we observe together, including:
-First Sunday Communion
-Weddings & Anniversaries
