We live out our Mission by knowing and loving God and His people, reaching out to and enfolding the searching and hurting, and being and forming more committed disciples.

 

  • We gather as a community each Sunday to worship God in a way which praises God for his faithfulness, fill our hearts with God's love, and teaches our minds the wisdom of Scripture.

  • We offer food and friendship on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.  Join us each Sunday morning at 9:20 a.m. for Coffee & Fellowship and again at 11:15 a.m., and each second Tuesday of the month for our FirstHope Community Meal.

  • Family-friendly environment … nursery, children’s worship, children and youth activities, and adult discipleship opportunities designed to help you find your purpose in life!
