Come Worship with us.......

We provide Biblical and dynamic worship in a loving, friendly atmosphere.  We feel it is critical to reach all people for Christ, so we work at sustaining a family oriented church.  You will discover here opportunities for ministry and activities that meet the needs of young singles, children, youth and adults.

We are God's people with common hurts and hopes, needs and gifts to share, dreams and despair.  We need each other and with God's help, we can meet your needs.  We care about you and each person no matter what situations you have faced.  We believe we are here for each other, not just to build a fancy building.  We know we all have problems in common and that God regards all persons as precious and to be loved.  Our message to you is an invitation.  We are reaching out to those in need, and we invite you in our adventure to reach out to others.

We extend an invitation to all to come and be a part of our church family, and to learn more about our church ministries.  We pray you will feel God's spirit through God's Son, Jesus, in our services and our fellowship.

      Scripture Text: 1Peter 2:1-9

      Sermon Title: "Thank God For Calling Us From Darkness To His Light"

      Beloved, this world is in a state of darkness when we witness the seemingly endless atrocities that are plaguing our society. The believers in the first century faced dark and dismal times because of persecution. Peter encouraged the believers that their hope comes from Christ's light shining in the midst of darkness. We must not lose heart in the midst of a fallen world but hold to that light that brings us grace and mercy. We celebrate the Lord's sacrament of Holy Communion to remind us that we shall overcome just like He conquered death and the grave. Pastor Parks
