Join Us For Service!

We Love the Lord and his people! We have two services. One at 8:30 am and another at 11:00am every Sunday Morning.  Our Early service is 1 hour, our second service is about 1.5 hours.  We sing, fellowship, engage in preaching, and generosity together.


Our Beliefs for the Church

We believe the church is a family. We love welcoming people home and inviting them to become part of the family. Our passion is to reach young families with Jesus’ love as they experience His power at work in the church, because we know that there is no limit to what God can do!
