OUTREACH MINISTRY
     Hello and thank you for visiting our website – a tool for us to go beyond our church walls and introduce people to Jesus. Take a look at the many opportunities each of us have to grow as disciples together and consider getting involved in a ministry.
     Please come join us this Sunday. We worship at 8:30 am and 11:00 am, with Sunday School for all ages at 9:45 am. We would love to see you and share in your journey. God Bless you!
