About us

In 2003 a group of Christians in our area met to discuss the possibility of starting a new church to serve the needs of people, love Christ, focus on more traditional worship, and respect and be open to others.

Worshipers from all Faiths are Welcome! Worship service is Sundays at 10 AM, which is also videotaped and posted on Facebook following the service.
