Be a Part of Our Church Family


Students in grades 6-12 meet for Bible study at 6:00 PM on Sundays. Our students go to concerts, church camp, and have many other opportunities to have fun and encounter Jesus together.


Mission Friends, Children in Action, and Children’s Choir are offered weekly for children to learn about God and grow in their faith. Nursery is available during all activities and services.


Our women seek to share Jesus with those who do not know Him, help one another become more like Him, and grow in the knowledge of His words. Bible studies, fellowship outings, an annual women's conference, and much more are planned throughout the year.


Men gather on Saturday each week for prayer, Bible study, and fellowship.  Formal Bible Studies and other activities are planned throughout the year.


We partner with local groups (such as Helping Hand and our schools) to serve our community in various ways. We host annual an annual Easter Egg Hunt, Trunk-or-Treat, and community Christmas dinner.


Our choir and praise band help lead us in worship.
