God's Vision

for Our Church

To create a loving community where everyONE, especially those who have felt “unwelcome,” are equal participants in God’s family and are accepted with compassion and understanding.


Joyful Friends


We believe that faith is a gift from God that does not depend on any level of human intelligence.


We long for the day when people of all abilities are fully accepted and expected in the Body of Christ.


Celebrate Recovery Mondays at 6 pm

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind.

Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our life.

Jesus initiated his ministry and teaching by reading these words from the prophet Isaiah;

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
   because he has anointed me
       to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
   and recovery of sight to the blind,
       to set free those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Luke 4:18-19 (NRSVUE)

He concluded by saying he was the fulfillment of these promises.
