Our Vision & Ministries

We seek to be a dynamic church that lives out this mission and these values as…

  • Prayerful people who REACH UP by seeking spiritual transformation through engaging in personal and communal relationships with God through WORSHIP and seeking His will as members of His Kingdom in PRAYER.
  • Faithful disciples who REACH IN by participating and investing in the church according to our spiritual gifts to come alongside one another to CARE for each other and GROW in our faith and friendships.
  • Missional people who REACH OUT to SERVE and bless the greater community by contributing our talents and resource and WITNESS to them so that they can experience the church as a place to be loved, to belong, and to taste and see that the Lord is good.
