You belong here! Bring your family, friends and neighbors! All are welcome!

We gather together as a community to worship God each week participating in and practicing the life of following Jesus Christ together. We worship God incorporating art, music, word, and table in order that we can be a community of God’s people who love and serve each other and the surrounding community God has placed us in.
