Estimate of Giving Drive September 15 through October 30th. Help us plan for the future while you plan for the giving part of your worship.

  • Freedom: We give because we are free from the claims money has on us and to demonstrate that our hope is not in material things, but in God.
  • Gratitude: We give out of a grateful heart because of all God has done for us.
  • Joy: God calls us to experience joy by giving. When we give, we do so joyfully.
  • Compassion: We give out of compassion for those in need.
  • Ownership: We give because all we have belongs to God.

In a little over a year, we have replaced our exterior window covers, uncovering our beautiful stained glass, repaired our ceiling in the sanctuary, installed energy efficient LED lighting throughout  the church, installed new concrete and an ADA compliant ramp to the sanctuary.  Lots of new paint and the hard work of volunteers is really making it a wonderful place to be!  See you soon!
