We worship through singing, prayer, and teaching, and we experience a rich sense of community through fellowship and sharing. We meet on Sunday mornings from 8:55 – 10:25 am in the Upper Room.

Recovery Ministry

We seek to provide a place to help develop a foundation for your life by using the 12-step recovery principles and biblical teaching as a tool for developing an intimate relationship with God, thus allowing us to depend upon His power and faithfulness.

“Praise be to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
