Large enough to serve you. Small enough to know you.

It is the priority of our staff to be servants. If you are in need of administrative details to a listening ear, stop by and pay us a visit. The church office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:30 am to 4 pm. We do close for lunch between 12:30 -1pm.
