Our mission is to be a "Caring Christian Community." To me this means to have received and to share the compassion of Christ, to be committed to an ongoing relationship with Him, and to be a part of a group of fellow believers.
We take special interest in the spiritual life of our children and provide age appropriate classes at church for them along with programs and the opportunity for Christian education.
