New Church Website

We are nearing completion of a brand-new website that provides us with the opportunity to share many of the wonderful things we do here in ministry and in outreach to the community. This new website will contain a photo gallery of many of our church and community events. Should you have any concerns about your photo being used in our church gallery, please bring it to my attention or one of the deacons. We very much would like to include our church family in the photos we have taken over the years. Notwithstanding our desires, if you have a concern with your photo being in the gallery of our church webpage, please let us know by March 18, 2018.

How Sweet It Is

How Sweet It Is! - Diabetes Awareness Program is a health and wellness initiative intended to reduce the risk of diabetes and to educate individuals about managing type 2 diabetes. How Sweet It Is! Is supported by a grant from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation.
