With an extended hand and a joyful spirit we welcome you today! We are blessed by your visit, and we believe that God has directed our paths to intersect. Our meeting is not an accident but a divine appointment. So we want to express Christ’s love to you with genuine warmth.
We’re delighted to know you, and we’re excited to share with you the marvelous ways in which God’s hand is at work in our church. We believe you will discover that our fellowship is truly a family, rich in the relationship that matters most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our world with life transforming truth. We reach out to you, as well with an open heart. If you’ve been thinking, praying, searching and hoping for a place to belong, we say again Welcome!
