WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE CHURCH YOU ARE SERVING? It’s people! They are in the Ministry of doing God’s work and they exemplify our Motto, “Growing in Love because we care and you count.” Love the entire church life – worship, fellowship, fun, great food (thanks to Pam Bray and our other amazing servant chefs!) … we are a family of God! –“Surely the presence of the Lord is in this Place … As given in testimony by one of our dear members – Mr. Bill Burge witnessed, ‘the Spirit of the Lord fills even the walls of this Sacred Space.’…”
