Welcome 

Thank you for visiting our website!

Welcome Home!  We've been waiting for you!  It's true, because we believe that every person who comes into the circle of this special fellowship was sent by God Himself.  It's not by accident that you have visited our website.  So, above all else we want to express Christ's love to you with genuine, heartfelt warmth.  We're eager to know you, and we're excited to share with you the marvelous ways God is working in our church.

If you visit us, it won't take long for you to discover that this is truly a family, rich in the relationships that matter most.  Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our world with life-transforming truth.  We reach out to you, as well.  Our doors are open. Our hearts are open, too.  If you've been thinking, praying, searching, and hoping for a place to belong, we say again - Welcome Home!
