What will you find here?

A community of people:

  • Whose faith and worship is at the heart of everything we do
  • Whose people are the ministers of our church family and at the core of all we do
  • Whose people demonstrate God’s love in the world through our love in action
  • Whose facilities are more than buildings and represent the ongoing commitment of our people to be a sanctuary and welcome to all.
  • Whose finances represent how we give back to God for the many blessings we have received and how we offer what we have for the good of all.
