in ministry and mission

It has been a terrific year in the life of the church! 

Each moment s spent in worship is holy, whether it is in a glorious anthem or a quiet prayer. 

Each task in earnest service is sacred

whether it is hanging drywall in a Habitat house

or affixing a label to a newsletter.


Likewise, each dollar is a blessing whether it purchases the meal for a homeless child

or the natural gas that was used to bake it. 

It is your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness that advances Christ

in our hearts and into our neighbor’s lives.

You have the opportunity to make a pledge in support of the 2017 ministry budget.
