"Called to Grow, Share, Serve"


Our Mission Statement
“A family of faith Called to Grow in the love of Christ,
Share that Good News, and Serve the world.”


Join us for Worship and
Our Congregational Meeting this Sunday

Dear Church Family,
This Sunday we will gather in worship as we continue our sermon series, “They Walked with God,”particularly looking at Abraham, the father of Israel.  Our text is Genesis 22:1-18, which focuses on God testing Abraham’s faith.  I encourage you to read and reflect on this prior to our time on Sunday.  In addition, we will remain after worship for a brief congregational meeting to do several things:

  • Have the annual meeting of the corporation
  • To hear and receive the 2022 annual report (including 2022 year-end budget and the approved 2023 budget)
  • To approve the Pastor’s terms of call
  • And to elect new officers to fill unexpired terms
Our blended service allows us to have our congregational meeting after worship so that we do not have to interrupt our Sunday school classes.  Childcare will be provided during the meeting for those who have young children in nursery or children’s church.  I look forward to seeing you there!
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jeff
