Welcome and you are invited… come see what we are all about and find out about how we are living the mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.


Welcome! What a beautiful family this church is. If you are new here, we welcome you, and are so glad to have you among us! What incredible connections that are made here. I hope you take advantage of the blessings and caring hearts of those around you. The connections in this congregation are strong and powerful! I’ve heard several refer to this church as family, and many who have shared the strength they’ve found coming from this place. If you haven’t found your niche here yet, please keep coming, connect with us, and we will see how we can get you connected!

God says that we are to put him first in everything that we do, and second we are to love our neighbors as ourselves. If the two greatest commandments are to love God and love one another, then everything that we do as a church comes out of relationship. We want to know you. It is the heartbeat of a believer to be in community with one another. If you want to take part but are struggling with the times offered, please talk to us. We will find an alternative way to connect. Please contact the church office for more details.

I look forward to growing closer to Jesus Christ right alongside of you. I look forward to seeing lives transformed by Jesus Christ. I look forward to continuing to see you, the Lord’s disciples, leaning into the beautiful presence of Jesus Christ. Come, worship with us! And, bring a friend! We are glad to know you! We are glad to worship with you!

Grace and Peace,

– Pastor Joy Mitchell
