“A Place Where Love Works”

We stand upon the foundation of the past and use it to launch us into the future that God has planned for all of us. We have gathered together, cast new vision, define our core values, and have charted a course for the future. We have begun to make our DREAMS become bigger than our MEMORIES.

Our History

We were founded in 1916. In 1998 a video was commissioned by Rev. Edward Jones. This video depicts that 75-year history of our church. We hope that you will enjoy looking back to our beginning.

Our Vision

"Love one another…by this everyone will know that you are my disciples – if you love one another." (John 13:34-35)

Biblical Foundation
The Bible is our source for all that we do as a church.

Continuous Spiritual Growth
We create environments for spiritual growth at every level.

Responsive Compassion
It is our responsibility to respond with compassion to those in need.

Authentic and Generational Relationships
This will be a spiritual family that crosses generational gaps and creates “a place where it’s OK to not be OK.

Excellence Honors God
Everything we do in our community and in our church should be done with excellence and care.

PLAN B: What to Do When God Doesn’t Show Up the Way You Thought He Would

All of us have had dreams, goals, plan, prayers, expectations, aspirations, and anticipations that, for a variety of reasons, have not come to fruition. PLAN A comes to an abrupt stop – and we’re not even sure if there is a PLAN B.

There is rarely a story of a journey of faith that doesn’t have a PLAN B story. The Bible is full of people, just like us, who needed HOPE in the midst of PLAN B situations.

God’s Glory Plan

John 11:1-21

GOD’S GLORY PLAN: Sometimes we are forced to face a hopeless situation in life – these are the kind of situations that we are never prepared to face. But in the midst of all of it, we feel closer to God than ever before – and that is because of HOPE.

There is an undeniable relationship between CRISIS and HOPE. Between waiting hopefully and being transformed. Between our PLAN B and the GLORY OF GOD. We don’t want the plan where a dream is crushed, a crisis is experienced, and we feel like we are waiting for too long – only to find out that God gets all the glory in the resolution.

We don’t like God’s GLORY PLAN – not if it involves our suffering. Not if it involves waiting for God and wondering if He’s ever going to act. Not if it involves PLAN B. We love the idea of following Jesus until it disrupts our plans and dreams.

Join us this Sunday at 10:00am as we continue our PLAN B message series and learn to wait on God and allow Him to be our HOPE – as He works all things out for His glory.
