About

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

Love God & Love Neighbor

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

Our church is doing a new pictorial directory!

We want everyone to get a new picture made so that our new directory will be complete.   It won’t be complete without you!

. If you missed having your picture taken by the church directory photographer and still want your picture included in directory, please take a digital picture with a camera or smartphone and then email it (in the larger file size) to pastorkelliw@gmail.com and bring the $10 fee to the office no later than Tuesday, September 8th noon.  Let us the office know if you have questions.

    If you want to use a previous directory photo or other professional photo, please also send the copyright permission.  To receive copyright permission, contact the photography company and ask for the copyright permission of your photo, so it can be included in the directory.  They often easily grant it, but you do have to ask.
