My wife, Audra and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for worshiping with us. We’re excited to welcome you to our family and believe God has great things in store for you.

From our hearts to yours, we pray that you will allow us the opportunity to minister to your needs through the practical application of God’s Holy Word.
