We are allowing worship, Sunday classes, and committees to meet at the church. Fellowship time and gatherings will be determined at a later date as to when they can resume.

Our Regular Schedule

Church School begins at 9:30 am, coffee and fellowship at 10:30, and worship begins at 11. With something for everyone, people of all ages can enjoy fellowship, study, and learning. Current classes include:
