Our worship is Bible-based, traditional in content, and rich in music and fellowship.  While being traditional, our worship services are friendly and informal as we take the time to greet one another, share prayer requests and celebrate special days in the life of members, friends and the congregation.  We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Baptism whenever we have the joyful opportunity, and share the Sacrament of Holy Communion once a month, keeping the feast as commanded by our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ until His return.


If you desire a church home where you will be needed and counted upon to be an active and willing carrier of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in your actions, words, and daily living, come join with us!  If you need a church home for comfort and security, we can help fulfill this need.  If you need a place to be loved and accepted, let us minister Christ's love to you.  If you need a church home where others will call you friend, then come and let us be friends and fellow workers for the Kingdom of God in Christ Jesus!






Our Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30 a.m.  Adult Bible Study begins at 9:00 a.m.  Children's Church/Sunday School begins at 10:30 a.m. 




Rev. Ernest Freund officiates for three Sundays of every month.  His office hours are Wednesdays and Fridays from 9-1 or by appointment.  He is available for hospital visits, shut-in visits and emergencies.  He is also available for weddings, funerals, baptisms and special services i.e. Seder Supper, Ash Wednesday, Easter and Christmas Eve.  Rev.
