Welcome to our Church.

Here may the faithful find salvation; The careless be awakened;
The doubting find faith; The anxious encouraged;
The tempted find help; The sorrowful comfort;
Here may the weary find rest; The strong renewed;
The aged find consolation; The young be inspired

We hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us.
Come and join us in worship and fellowship.
