Small church with a BIG faith!

 You've heard good things come in small packages and we are living proof. We love God big and we serve our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with happy hearts. Come see what we are all about. 

What we are about

Holy Bible

God's word is not a doctrine or a rule, but a person. When we want to see what God is like we look to Jesus. In the Bible, people remembered their encounter with God especially in Jesus. We center our worship and study on the Bible.

The Word

Methodist Campground

Valuing the past, but anticipating the future.

Traditions

Wooden Cross

Every one has faith. We trust someone or something around which we organize our lives. We believe that trusting God in Jesus Christ is the solid foundation for living. We believe that there can be great variety in particular beliefs as long as we trust God and follow Jesus.
