…is the heart of life together, and we believe the work of God flows from Spirit-filled worship.

Scripture, faithfully interpreted in the power of Holy Spirit, is our guide for faith and life.

We keep our hearts and minds open, believing the Spirit is leading us to believe new things, do new things, and become new people.

And FUN is another word for the fruit of the Spirit called JOY, so we consider FUN a sacred activity.

We bring our gifts of talent to support a ministry or program of the church. We bring our gifts of treasure to support all these ministries, plus our staff and space. Find a place to get involved!


Mission Partners

We have many different local, national, denominational, and global mission partners. Each partner helps us share God’s love in Word and deed, and relieve suffering in Christ’s Name.

Beside your time and talents, this congregation depends on your generosity with treasure also. Jesus reminds us, “Where our treasure is, THAT’S where our heart will be also.”


From our Pastor

“Wow, what a gift! After seven years of service, this congregation blessed me with a sabbatical from May through July. I rested, healed, reflected, and learned. I’d love to share more of what I remembered and learned about myself and this church. I’m looking forward to sharing with you all what I believe God might be inviting us to do together in the seasons ahead.”

Rev. Joel L. Tolbert

Pastor since April 2012
