partners in our prayers

      We continue to pray for the people of Ukraine: those who remain in-country and those who are seeking refuge elsewhere. One way we are answering our prayers is through our partnership with the Košice Baptist Church in Slovakia. The nearest border with Ukraine is sixty miles away.  Over the past year, they have hosted refugee families, provided food and other supplies, and assisted with transportation. For many refugees, Košice is a place of welcome and comfort before finding long-term accommodations.  Through your generosity, we have already wired a total of $18,000 to the church and will continue to receive contributions. Please mark your donation as “Ukrainian Relief: Slovakia.”  To watch a video of this ministry in Košice, click the link below.

We are persons on a journey of faith.

Our church seeks to be a worshiping and serving community where the gospel of Jesus Christ is modeled and proclaimed.

We invite you to join us for worship each Sunday at 11:00 a.m.  We are no longer requiring vaccinations or masks for worship.  However, we do encourage vaccinations and mask wearing as means of keeping one another safe and eventually overcoming the pandemic.

We continue to develop safe ways to resume other activities and ministries.  Please refer to our newsletter, The Link, for all current and upcoming events.

You can join us virtually for worship through our livestream link above on this page. You can find worship services from previous weeks by visiting our Worship Page.
