About Us

Our church of about 75-90 faithful attenders (local and online) is a family who support each

other, with a commitment to our local community. We have many older saints who lead our

church, and are looking to expand our membership of younger couples and children. Our

church is debt-free, owns the well-maintained building and grounds where we meet that is

equipped with a commercial kitchen. The church is used during the week by a Christian Pre-

school, a very well attended AWANA program, Women and Men Bible Studies and a Young

Adult ministry group. Unlimited Youth is our youth ministry, in which 6th-12th grade meet

weekly. A bi-annual AutoBond helps to take care of our local single women’s vehicles, with oil

changes, tire maintenance and occasionally other needed work.

The Men meet weekly for breakfast, and also have a monthly Prayer Breakfast at the church.

The Women meet monthly for lunch. We also have a monthly potluck. We like to break bread


The church sends missionary support to several missions around the world, and has a history of

helping to plant new churches. We also partner with the local schools to supply clothing, food

and other needs throughout the year. At Christmas time we partner with Samaritan Purse to

send gift boxes to underdeveloped nations and help spread Gods love.

Our pastor of over 30 years has left us to explore what God has planned for him. He served as

our Worship Leader first before manning the pulpit, so we are also searching for a replacement

in that area. We are looking forward to meeting the man God has prepared for our next chapter

of ministry work.
