November 17, 2023

As Methodists, we are called to cultivate more disciples and deeper disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of our community and world. You are invited to join us on the journey.

This week

Join Us For Worship

Join us for “You Asked For It”, our current sermon series where the sermon gives a response to questions our congregation is asking about God, or faith, or a biblical story. Join us as we wonder, why does God allow suffering? Who is the Holy Spirit? and how do you live knowing every day you will die? We are grateful for all the questions submitted!

Brimming with fresh arrangements of favorite carols, the concert has reflective moments,

both triumphant and tender, that celebrate the Christmas story.
