Mission Statement

We offer a deep sense of home that is warm, welcoming and accepting. Worship expresses our gratitude for God's unimaginable grace. We seek to bring every age into discipleship, nurture all God's people, listen for God's call in the midst of our lives, witness to the presence of God's Kingdom in our world as we engage in mission, and to 'see Christ in the face of others.'
