LIVING like Jesus, bringing JOY to God

Our Vision


like Jesus,

bringing Joy to God

In worship last week we celebrated our new church vision statement: Living like Jesus, Bringing joy to God. Stop by the information desk in the Narthex and get a vinyl cling that you may put somewhere you’ll see every day (like your bathroom mirror, your refrigerator, etc.) so that it can help shape your daily decisions, choices and activities. If you missed last weekend’s sermon, listen online at
