Sunday Worship Service: 9:30 AM
Sunday School for all Ages: 11:00 AM

In an era of mass marketing, uncontrolled consumerism, loneliness, and growing violence, we are working to create a sense of community for ourselves and our neighbors. We believe that the best response to cynicism, doubt, and isolation is to invite both friends and strangers to share the burdens and joys of life together-in Christ's community.

We are an open group and you are welcome to join us. We have an active young adult and college-age student group.
