Invitation From Pastor Katie
I invite you to explore this website to learn more about us. You can also discover some of our excitement and energy from our Facebook page. Most importantly, I invite you to visit us on Sunday Morning so that you can personally experience the warmth and love of this amazing congregation.
As a missional Church, we are committed to reaching out to our neighborhood, community and world. You will find outreach activities here that will help you make a difference in the lives of others. We believe that God is at work in the world and God calls us to participate in this work. Our mission is to inspire you to live and serve with Christ!
We Presbyterians do not agree on every issue, but we do always honor and respect on another Jesus Christ is the center who holds us all together.
If this missional and mature Christian perspective resonates with you, there is a place for you among us!
