you are welcome here.

In lieu of person-to-person worship during the pandemic, check out our weekly "Worship Moment" videos on YouTube. Just click on the YouTube symbol near the top of this page and go to videos or go to our Facebook ("f") page and check the recent post about the video.

Please read the announcement below.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the church buildings will be closed and on site activities cancelled through April 30, 2020.  The situation is fluid and may change. Stay informed and watch for notices.

Let us be faithful and vigilant in our prayers for those nations, communities, families and individuals affected by this outbreak, and for the medical personnel and government officials seeking to respond.

It is important to follow common sense precautions. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing.

It is also important that we remain faithful in  our stewardship even if we cannot physically be together in worship. You can use our  website to donate online or you can mail your offering to the church.

Our church buildings may be closed but the Body of Christ is alive and well, learning new ways to worship and serve during these challenging times.  Let us remember and rejoice that “nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom 8:38–39).

Nobody’s perfect here & everybody’s welcome.

We are a multi-generational church that welcomes every person regardless of their background. Our goal is to help you connect with God.

Come As You Are

Experience sincere caring friendships as together we seek to live faithfully, demonstrating Christ’s love to the world.

We have a heart for God in the heart of the city.

We invite you to join us as we serve our community and our world in the name of Jesus Christ.

Our purpose is to share God's love and grace with all people and celebrate the truth of Jesus Christ.

Worship with us

Sundays at 10:00 am

Worship with us...come as you are. It’s what’s in the heart, not the outward appearance that matters most. Every Sunday, our "Full Treasure" worship is a God-centered celebration. We gather to worship Jesus and encourage each other.

Join us this Sunday at 10:00 am!

Bad Weather Advisories

If it's necessary to cancel Worship or programs due to bad weather, notices will be broadcast on WWMT, Channel 3 and WBCK 95.3 FM.  You can also sign up for e-mail and/or text notifications.
