We invite you to learn about our ministries
and visit our congregation.

Since 1837,
our Christian community has been meeting
to praise God, study the Bible, bear each other's burdens,
share each other's joys, and reach out to help the world around us.

Christ's Love and God's Abundant Grace
empower our efforts and shape our ministries.

Come and Worship with Us
as we discover together where God is leading us
in these days ahead!
