Our Charter

Our Mission and our Vision ... good stuff!

This sums it up ... Who we are & What we are up to! It's pictured on a flowing river, because rivers always change and become. When people agree that they want to be part of what God is up to with our cogregation, they sign their names right onto the flowing water of the river pictured! Click here to read what our says.

Haiti Mission Trip

Village of Hope & Lazarus House

We periodically travel to Port au Prince, Haiti, where we serve in any or all of a school, orphanage, or medical center. We make these trips not only to serve our brothers and sisters in this impovershed country, but we also find that we are incredibly blessed in so doing. It seems that no matter how much we give, we find that God always grows our hearts even more. Click here to see images of our April 2014 journey.
