Church Life


Ministry is using whatever God has given you to serve Him and the needs of others.

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV)

We believe that God has given every Christian: SHAPE


Spiritual gifts that are given for the express purpose of serving others.


Heart motivations that influence the choices we make and the feelings we have.


Abilities that empower our service and affirm our choice of ministry areas.


Personalities that lend themselves to diverse opportunities.


Experiences, whether spiritual, educational, or those born of pain, that compel us toward ministry.

Community Services

We embrace the needs of the surrounding communities as a source for supplies in the case of local and national disasters locally, and have members trained in disaster and emergency care. We further support our community with a Thrift Shop, a Food Bank Program, and as an outlet for the Salvation Army.
