Calendar

No upcoming events.

 We ask you to please keep our church in your prayers as we search for a new pastor.   On September 29th, 2019 we wished our friends (and former pastor and his wife) Peter and Michelle Surran farewell.  We know God has a plan for them and for our church,  Our prayers and blessings are with them as they move to NC to care for family.
