As a United Methodist congregation, we are seeking to follow Jesus Christ to the best of our ability.  We do not claim to be perfect or to always get it right, but we are seeking to live according to the example of Jesus.  We believe Jesus came into this world to teach us about God’s love and that he died and rose from the dead to forgive us of our sins and, ultimately, to renew the world.  We believe faith is a journey, and we are all at different places along that journey. Wherever you are on the journey, you are welcome to take the next step with us.

Our Mission and Vision



Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. 



Our vision is how we accomplish the mission.  We believe the best way to grow in our faith is to connect with one another and God through worship, foundational classes and fellowship, to grow in our faith through small groups, and to serve others in ministry.
