What to Expect

On Sunday morning you can expect to enter a room filled with people of all different ages and lots of kids.

The people are dressed however they feel comfortable- shorts, jeans, dresses, slacks, fishing shirts to dress shirts.

The people are friendly, but might be a little shy. We all get to know each other over time.

Our worship area is comfortable but not huge. We seat about 50 people at a time. The kids have their own room for activities.


We think it is better to use our resources in helping people outside the church, than using them on a big facility.

Various days during the month we meet for prayer, activities for the youth, service projects in the community, and (coming soon) discussion groups at local food places.

Hope you have a great week!
