Supporting our local community
We sit at the intersection of faith and life in our community. Being hospitable is not just something that we do, it is an assignment we have been given by Christ himself. We host an array of events for adults, children and youth in the community. We provide meeting space for social and benevolent clubs. We minister to those in need in our community. Our services, gatherings and educational opportunities are open to all who seek experiences to connect to Christ and be inspired to serve.
