  • PASTOR DALE'S MESSAGE SUNDAY IS ON EMPTINESS

    We look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday as Pastor Dale continues his series, "Gifts of the Dark Wood," focusing on EMPTINESS. The Scripture lesson is Mark 15:22-38. In our journey this Lent toward the Cross, we know even Jesus felt empty despair ... and it was at this moment that God's possibility of life beyond that pain was revealed.

    Blessings!

Who We Are

We are a growing congregation, a place where you can authentically connect with others who are exploring what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We are young and old. We are left and right. We are contemporary, traditional, and blended. We believe our differences enrich the experience of community as we learn from one another. We are united by our commitment to work, play, and worship together as we answer the call to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Come experience the congregation that shares the message of hope and grace - and offers to all a place to belong.
