Our Ministries

The Connection is a casual time of friendship and fellowship from 9:15 to 10:30 every Sunday morning. We have free coffee, juice, milk, and donuts. Whether you visit with close friends or meet new friends, this is a time of building community and relationships. NOTE: for the health and well-being of our church family we have discontinued The Connection until further notice. 

Sunday Morning Worship Gatherings every Sunday morning at 10:30 we gather together as a community in song, prayer, and Biblical message. We have a blend of traditional hymns and choruses that bring glory to God while bringing joy to our lives. We have a staffed nursery for newborns and toddlers during the entire worship service. Children (6th grade and below) are encouraged to attend Children’s Church and are dismissed just before the morning message.
