Food Pantry

We appreciate your patience as we work through the details for our food pantry schedule. Feeding people has always been a major part of our mission, serving men, women and children, including many single parents, and we want to return to doing so as quickly as possible. We are here to give a hand up and not a hand out.

Worship Service

Our Worship Service will be taking place out of our new temporary location. These services have a relaxed atmosphere, and can include singing, Bible readings, and presentations by worship or drama groups. As well as services on a Sunday, there are often weekday and evening activities, such as prayer groups, family events, lunch groups, youth clubs, and meetings for seniors. Please call for more details and to see what is offered when!
