Our mission is making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  

We fulfill that mission by: introducing people to Jesus Christ, by discipling Christians and by relieving suffering.

  • Easter Prayer Vigil Apr. 10-12

    Our Easter Prayer Vigil will not be cancelled.  We will be praying from home rather than the church.  I encourage you to find or create your own prayer closet at home or in your backyard.  There are still numerous prayer slots to fill.  You can sign up at


    When it’s your time to pray, I would encourage you to text or call the person who has been praying and let them know you are taking over.
