 Come Worship With Us!

Followed by Fellowship and Coffee
Sunday School   10:30 am

We are a vital and growing congregation that worships God in a blended service that includes a lively praise team as well as traditional elements, guitars and drums as well as the pipe organ and piano.  We believe in worshipping together as a church family, with all generations contributing to and receiving from the community of Christ.

We have a nursery available on Sunday mornings as well as during many of the other activities in the church.

The life of this congregation extends far beyond Sunday morning worship.  Faith Steps Community Pre-School brings the sound of little feet and voices on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.  We crank up Wednesday afternoons with Cross Training for elementary students from 3:30-4:45.  We follow that up with our Crossroads Meal, which is open to all in the community, serving from 5:00-6:30.  There is no charge for dinner, but a free-will offering is received with any proceeds above the meal expense being used for missions.  Music fills God’s house throughout Wednesday after dinner with rehearsals for the Bell Choir and the Chancel Choir.  Our youth gather as well on Wednesday evenings for a time of worship and praise and other activities.

Throughout the week, there are many activities taking place, including Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, Bible studies, United Methodist Women, and many other community activities which we are happy to host in our building.

This is a fun, active, lively, place to be and we would love to include you in our community of people who love God as together we continue to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Jeff Miller
