Here's what God did in 2020


Looking back over this past year, our heart is full of fond gratitude for the open hand that so many in our church have for the things of God.

Although this year brought challenge & loss, God was faithful each step of the way and we saw increase and miracles take place.

It is such a tremendous joy to pastor this amazing church. We are so expectant for what's in store for 2021!


“Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.”
