Whether you have never missed a Sunday of worship, or never set a foot in church before, you are welcome here! We are a community of people journeying through life and faith together. This is a place where you can ask questions, voice your doubts, and wrestle with complex issues. This is a place where you can shout with joy or weep in pain. This is a place where you can experience hope and healing. We hope you will come just as you are and join us as we seek to know God more fully and love more deeply.
Rev. Jennifer Karsner

Come, gain a new appreciation of God's guidance toward faithful and blessed living. Here is a fresh look at those familiar words so central to the will and way of God. Explore the commandments, from their biblical setting through the teachings of Jesus and into our own lives. In seven sessions, we discover how God's timeless laws speak solid truth to us today. Contact: Kurt Kuhn if interested.
This ministry started at our church in 2005, and since that time we have given away over 200 shawls. Members knit or crochet prayer shawls that are a symbol of God's grace, peace, and love. We make shawls for all different reasons, sometimes it is for a difficult situation, but other times it is to celebrate a wedding, friendship, or graduation. Newcomers and beginners are always welcome. For more info, contact Fern Bowman .
