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.
~ John Wesley

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!   You can make your appointment at church on the sign-up sheets starting July 12th, calling the office, OR you can click on the link below and make your appointment on-line. (Some time spots are designated for online registration, others for paper sign up sheet.) Please go ahead and do that now.

Photo dates are: August 24-26, 2020

The directory company has revised their process to provide social distancing, limit contact, and make it as safe as possible.

Your participation will help the church and yourself.  Every family photographed for the directory will receive a copy of the directory and an 8×10 portrait at no cost.  You will also have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits for family and friends.
