Families of all ages will find ways to connect, celebrate, and grow at our two locations.


Baptism is open to all ages, and when you are ready to schedule a baptism please contact our Pastor via the church office.

First communion is a wonderful milestone in a child’s life. Please talk to the Pastor to schedule first communion classes.

Parenting comes with joys and challenges. We welcome all types of parents and children in worship. The pastor is available for pastoral care and further support for your family.

Household Prayers

Our congregations lift up different households during weekly prayers. Rest assured your family is being prayed for throughout the week by the pastor and our community.
