Please remember our Missionaries in your daily prayers as they are in need of them every day. We put up new information as they come in on the bulletin board. Please take time to read them as they inform us of their work and their prayer needs. Thank You.

About Membership: This is a step of mutual affirmation. For the applicant—it is to affirm their desire to unite with this local body of believers. It is an alignment with our doctrine, polity, and philosophy of ministry and to walk in covenant community together. For the church family—it is an affirmation that they are co-witnesses together with us of Christ’s life in us—the hope of glory. This is recognition that we have been born of the Spirit and have been baptized together in Christ and that we will walk together in newness of life until Jesus returns. We recognize that this local expression of the body of Christ is but a part of the larger overall expression of the body of Christ in the world.

Missionary Newsletters can be found on our Missions Board in the foyer. All the latest postings can be read there.
