Our motto here is "Growing in Faith, Hope, & Love." If you are a "work-in-progress" too, we hope you will come grow with us!
Sunday School is on break until the Fall. During the summer months we encourage parents to bring their children to the Worship service and worship as a family. You can pick up coloring pages & crayons for your child in the Spirit Café when you pick up your bulletin :) Confirmation Class
