Let's Get Connected
The most important way to stay in communication is through our online program, "OnRealm" or the phone version "Connect". It allows you to get information that is only shared inside the church family, get a first look at what is shared on other social media platforms and connect with each other. "Connect" also allows you a secure place to give. Finally, it acts as a virtual church directory! In an emergency, it is where we go first to look for you and how you are doing.

Communion Sundays

Communion is offered monthly, usually the first Sunday of the month. Communion elements can be requested and will be delivered in the most efficient way. Please notify us two weeks ahead of Communion Sunday so we can do our best to make sure the elements are delivered on time. Each packet has been personally prayed over and blessed by the pastors.

Prayer Requests

Prayer is very important at our church.  Our Pastors and Intercessors welcome the opportunity to include your requests in their prayers.
Pastor's invite you to Coffee and Fellowship
Wednesdays at 9 a.m.
First time or been here for generations? We would love to know you better, answer your questions, and learn your story!
