We are SO GLAD you are here! Thanks for joining us. We are an
imperfect church with imperfect people seeking to experience the
perfect love of Christ and live it out. Our hope is that you feel free to be
yourself here and to engage in the worship, fellowship and mission of
our community in the ways that feel right to you. We invite you to fill out
a yellow Welcome Card (located in pew racks) and place it in the
offering plate when it is passed so we can more fully welcome you and
get to know you a little better.
