One of our greatest aspirations as a church is to make sure that you and your family find a safe haven in the midst of a stormy world. We consider it an honor from God for Him to send people to us that need shelter.

Children who come to us will discover loving and caring people waiting for them in their classrooms, and in their activities. Young people will experience the detemination of a staff of people who truly believe that there is a treasure inside of each young person that is just waiting to be discovered and released.

Our church is a "Family Place". We do not profess to be all-in-all to the family, be we are striving to see that every age group within the family receives the attention needed to prosper in their Christian life.
