Blended Service - Sunday 

10:00 AM



10/11 & 10/18 2020

With safe seating, we currently offer one blended service on Sunday mornings in our main sanctuary. That means a mix of both traditional and contemporary style service awaits you, your family, and friends.

Traditional and contemporary worship music are offered. And communion is served on the first Sunday of each month. 

Pastor Mike delivers timely messages from the Bible that uplift, encourage, and teach us how to become more like Jesus every day.

Our children's director, Pam Post, presents a children's message at each service, and kiddos currently worship alongside their parents. Beginning September 20, 2020 there will be provisions for Children's Sunday School during service.

God Is Reaching & Teaching Children, Youth, Families, & Seniors
of Our Community for the transformation of the World

BECAUSE OF THIS CHURCH Jesus allows us to help nurture and meet the needs of the people in our awesome community.

BECAUSE OF THIS CHURCH the people of our community have the freedom to explore new horizons, make new friends, pray for others and receive prayer, experience love and compassion, ask the questions about God that have been keeping them awake at night, and most importantly begin - build - and grow their relationship with Jesus (no matter their age).


BECAUSE OF THIS CHURCH we have been able to develop an after school program, JAM. This  program is one way kids are hearing the Gospel, praising and worshiping God, being creative, playing outside, and getting help with their homework. Stemming from the JAM program are our FX Family Dinners that bring people of all ages and walks of life together over food, fun, and fellowship. And our youth have a safe place to gather and share life.


BECAUSE OF THIS CHURCH you have a friend in Jesus, and can discover how you can secure your eternity in heaven.
