Worship With Us

Worship! This is our response to our loving God. All that we do is born out of a living, loving relationship with the Triune God. Our worship services are designed to provide a meaningful space for worshipers to connect with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We invite you to join us as we express our love and thanks for the wonder, beauty, and majesty of the God of all creation.

Our Values

We, as United Methodist Christians, value Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God, who is our Savior and Lord. We value the written word of God, the Bible, that reveals God’s redemptive plan for all of creation, guides us in daily life, and sets our hopes toward a victorious future. We value our God given mission to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” We value Christian fellowship where life is lived in community with all of its joys and sorrows. We value the world in which we live. We seek to be good stewards of all that God has entrusted to us. We affirm all persons as equally valuable in the sight of God and stand against all forms of racism.
