is a family-oriented church that's been around almost 50 years. We are a friendly
congregation that welcomes new faces. Our Sunday service, at 9:30 a.m., is Biblically-based
and features both traditional and contemporary music. There's Sunday School for kids and
teens with nursery care for infants. After worship, we have a fellowship hour that offers
coffee, juice and a time to meet and connect with others.

We love having our facility used for Christian weddings. The sanctuary has beautiful stained glass windows and a center aisle. Your first step should be to contact Nancy Stokely, our facility coordinator, Mondays or Wednesdays, 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Nancy will need to know your preferred wedding date and time. She will confirm that both our pastor, Dr. Randy McGrady-Beach, and the Wedding Coordinator, Teresa DeHope, are available. Should you wish to use your own Christian pastor, we can usually accommodate your request. If you are interested in more information and rates, please contact the church office.
This is usually a period of great stress for families, we'd like to help provide support during this time. We are glad to make the sanctuary available for both memorial and funeral services. Please contact the pastor and the church office to discuss arrangements, service options, fees, etc. Should you wish to use your own pastor, we can usually accommodate your request. The Fellowship Hall may be used for receptions following a service, subject to its availability. Please contact us to discuss further.
Our facility is a busy one. We have two preschools that meet on site, a food bank that operates here as well as many outside groups, from Alanon to Girl Scouts, that regularly meet on the campus. Though the facility is used quite fully, should your group need a meeting location, feel free to contact Nancy Stokely, Facility Coordinator, Mondays or Wednesday, in the church office to check for availability.
