Welcome

Welcome to our church family!  We believe you are not here by chance, but that God has brought you here to receive a special gift from the Holy Spirit.  We are honored to be a part of that gift as we surround you with love.  As you worship and gather with us, we will also be sharing in the gift God has given us in you.  Enjoy the community and be sure to stop by after the service and introduce yourself.  We have ways to do that in-person and online. Let us know you were here. We look forward to getting to know you better.

– Pastor Lois & Pastor Julie



While Human Trafficking has been in existence for a long time, there is a new way those who traffic men, women, and children is occurring for those escaping Ukraine due to the war. In labor and sex trafficking situations across the country, traffickers target and build trust with youth and adults in positions of vulnerability, then create dependence by promising to meet their needs. Traffickers can then subtly promote the idea that selling sexual services or working for little to no hourly wage is normal, acceptable, necessary, and even freely chosen, even for children. For those leaving their homes in Ukraine, they have nothing and predators are eagerly waiting for them. Our church is partnering with International Rescue Committee (IRC) and their anti trafficking program Human-trafficking Outreach, Prevention and Education (HOPE) by sending $25 Visa gift cards to IRC for immediate delivery to refugees in need. 100% of your donation goes to refugees so they can purchase items needed personally and for their families. You can make a difference by:

1. Making a gift through our online giving or sending a check in (make sure you tell us it is for the outreach)

2. Send in visa gift cards in $25 denominations

3. Purchase visa gift cards through the church scrip program and give them to the church for this outreach

We can make a difference. Thank you for your donations and prayers for all refugees.

New First Kids Series!!! Starts May 1st through May 29th

Have you ever watched the show Wipeout? You know, where there is this crazy obstacle course and people try to get through it without being knocked off? We love to watch that kind of thing because we like to see if they can do it (and maybe to laugh a little in the process). How about when sports athletes’ do amazing things after everything seems hopeless? This month we are talking about Resilience: getting back up when something knocks you down. Did you know that the Bible is full of stories where God uses normal people – just like you and me – and helps them do amazing things, even when life has knocked them down? Life is hard. Bad things happen. Don’t give up! Keep trusting God no matter what!!
