We know that life gets very busy. It is not always easy to fit one more thing into our schedules. But, we also know that God is eager to see you come and participate in church. Everyone has many talents and interests and the church is always willing to give that opportunity to you as a disciple of Christ!

How much time you give to the church is entirely up to you and your schedule. Just know, the church appreciates your giving of time to teach others, to help on a committee or to just come to church to pray and learn more about being a Christian. All is acceptable! We hope to see you come, open your heart and be ready to be fulfilled!
