Thanks for visiting!

We hope we have the opportunity to meet you very soon! Aside from a visit to our church in person, you should be able to find everything you need to know about our church here. If you're interested in our beliefs and doctrine, or the ministries available within our church, we encourage you to check it all out. There is an archive of past sermons kept with our good friends at And you can also view the most recent church bulletin to see what's happening. If there is anything else that you would like to know, you are welcome to contact our church office.

We exist to help people know with certainty where they will be for eternity. We happily answer questions and would be delighted to meet you in person sometime soon!

Sincerely yours,

Groups & Ministries

Sunday School

Our Sunday School program meets for 45 minutes each Sunday morning at 9:30. There are classes for all ages and stages of life, including a clean and well-staffed nursery for children ages 3 and younger. If you are not sure into which class you might fit best, please let our pastoral staff know and we can help find the right fit for you.


The adult choir sings every Sunday in the morning worship service. They meet on Sunday evenings at 5pm for practice before the evening service at 6pm. Some of the highlights of the year are when our choir presents special musicals and cantatas for our church family and community during the Christmas or Easter seasons. You can find these scheduled on the church events calendar.  Our choir sings traditional, conservative, Christ honoring music that pleases the Lord.

FUEL Student Ministry

Our middle and senior high students meet weekly on Sundays at 6 pm to have a fantastic time together. We play the best games, challenge each other spiritually, and just have a great time! We would love for you or your children to join us!
