“If you would decide to come to our church you would find a lively place: A place where people know the love of Jesus Christ and express that love in action. We are a congregation who live out the scripture from Genesis 12 in which the people are told that they are “blessed in order that they might be a blessing to others.”
This is not your dull Sunday morning place. This is a place in which laughter and joy reign. People choose to come here to worship and to serve the community in the name of Jesus Christ because they love Jesus and they love this community.
You probably wonder just how you might fit in. Well here are a few suggestions: Of course try out our 11:00 worship service. Start your Sundays with a free breakfast beginning at 10:00 am and the chance to meet some of your friends and neighbors in the Fireside Room.
Or, you could volunteer to help with the Clothing Closet. We are well established and there is lots of work to be done. Call the church office at 273-5000 to ask how you can help.
We support the local food bank and help with school supplies and that is just a short list of all this congregation does.
We are all blessed to be blessings. Come join us in sharing the many blessings we all have been given.
