Welcome 

We are blessed that you are here today. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing as well.

We are a community journeying to live as disciples of Jesus, practice hospitality in community, and bring hope through worship, fellowship and service.

On any given day, if you have a chance to visit this sacred place which we call our community's home, you will meet strangers as well as friends who will welcome you, strive to serve you in Christ's name and offer you the hand of fellowship.

On Sundays, we pray you will join us in worship as we join together to celebrate who God is and who we are as God's children.

In the between time, may God hold you in the embrace of God's love.

 

Verse of the Year:
