Church Checkup as of May 2018:  Our church in action provides opportunities to bring people to God including discipleship, mission and worship.

Discipleship:  opportunities for groups of people to gather on a regular basis with the goal of becoming more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, through an intentional process of learning, mutual support and accountability.

May discipleship included Confirmation classes, Sunday School program, Youth Group, Friendship Circle, Social Issues Discussion, Church Clean-up, Book Study The Land Between: Finding God in Difficult Transitions and church committees.

Missions:  opportunities for persons to participate on behalf of the congregation in ministries intended to transform people in our community, region and world; provide hope to those in need; and serve to show God’s commitment to the world.
