    At Derita Church,
we are making a difference as we seek to:
  • Follow Christ's example as we serve others in our community,
  • Lead others in spiritual growth - God  loves us and wants us to experience a personal relationship with Him.
  • Worship God in our services - it's all about God and relationships.  Our worship services are definitely not boring, but seek  to honor God in all we do.

Because of the unique ways we serve others and worship Him, God has called Derita Church to be a different kind of church and we are making a difference.  Come check us out and join us in sharing Christ's love.
