Everyone gathering.

We welcome you to our church. As the ministerial staff, we humbly attempt to take up the towel and basin of ministry to our church and our community. We treasure walking with our people through every facet of their lives. We take seriously our calling to shepherd our church into the future. We seek to follow Jesus as His disciples; He is our point leader. We simply try to discern His voice, and, then, say, “Follow Him!”
