...Know, Grow, Go, Show, Sow
We are a congregation that enjoys worshiping and learning about God in a casual atmosphere, with lots of great activities for kids and teens, and many opportunities for you and your family to become active in a caring, Christian community.
We are a church where lives are transformed in Jesus Christ. The cross in our logo signifies the life we have in Him and that He is the foundation of all we do. The leaves represent the five aspects of our mission statement: To help persons KNOW Christ and GROW in their faith in order to GO outside our doors and SHOW His love through words and actions to SOW seeds of faith in others.
Looking for some creative family fun this season? Join us for Pinterest Christmas on Saturday, December 12 from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. Admission is free and all supplies are included to make as many as fifteen different Christmas tree ornaments.
“We wanted to provide an opportunity for our families in our community to make simple Christmas memories and spend some quality time together,” said Shannon Ponder, event coordinator. “People that come to Pinterest Christmas will have tangible items to remind them of those memories year after year.”

In the end, everyone came to understand the Biblical understanding of thankfulness, and they all lived happily ever after.Read more...
