"I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the (ware)house of the Lord!" --Psalm 122:1

You're invited!  We would like to invite you to be our guest and come experience the life-changing community called "the church."  You will find real people who face real problems every single day.   The difference-maker in their lives?  The love of God and the love of the people who are the church.  

Please take two hours of your Sunday and join us.  We meet at 9am & 10:30am each Sunday for worship and Life Groups.  We have a nursery and toddler area for your younger children, and amazing, fun groups and worship for your preschoolers and children.  Teenagers?  We have something for them, too!  No matter what stage-of-life you find yourself, we have a place for you.
