We are a community of believers in Christ.  Anyone who wishes to know Christ's peace, joy, forgiveness and love is heartily received at our worship services and at our congregational events.  We are actively asking the Spirit of the Risen Christ to transform us into the church that brings God's mercy to the world.

to such as these."
Matthew 19:14

Reflection on Lessons

Mission Emphasis

Circle of Support  (COS) is a program that offers mentoring and companionship for folks who are caught in the cycle of incarceration. The COS, made up of 5 or 6 functioning members of the community, offers support that many don't get from friends or family. Circle members are not expected to provide money or housing, just good advice. COS members often know of opportunities and options available in the community that could help folks out of the cycle. Most circles meet weekly and chat like old friends. If you are interested in forming your own circle or joining an existing circle please contact any member of the Outreach Ministries committee. Monetary donations are also welcomed and encouraged.
