Getting to know us…

We are so glad you are here, and we want you to feel at home right away. That’s why we make it a priority to have a “come as you are” atmosphere. Our vision is ‘Connect ~ Love ~ Grow ~ Serve.’ Connect with one another, Love God through Worship, Grow in your faith, and Serve one another.

We welcome visitors at all activities. There is a nursery provided during worship time, always having at least 2 people on duty with the children. We enforce our Safe Gatherings policies in regard to children, the elderly, or the disabled.

We are a church that welcomes everyone. In fact, we offer breakfast each Sunday in our Cornerstone Cafe. You will be welcome to join them for food and fellowship.

The people of The United Methodist Church are putting their faith in action by making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, which is our church’s mission. Through the power of our connection, we are making a positive difference in more than 125 countries. To learn more about being a United Methodist click HERE.
