Wherever the place you call “home” is, we would be more than delighted to have you join us this coming Sabbath and any Sabbath you can find the time to worship with us.

If you are new in the area or searching for a church family, we invite you to attend some of the activities, the covered dish dinners and programs, and of course the worship services.  Try us out.  We're an active, involved church family, especially with our mission and outreach programs and our seasonal Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. There is a special place for you on our journey with God.
