There is a 10a.m. service today.

Good morning and a big welcome to church.

Today I will continue to speak from the book of 1st Timothy that holds great truths for us all. I encourage you to open your hearts to worship God and let's learn from His word this morning.

We have finished our evening services for the year apart from our special service on Christmas Eve which I welcome you, your family and friends to attend. It will be SPECTACULAR!

Bless you church.
-- Pastor Brent.

Dear Friend
We welcome you to the greatest adventure of all time - a personal relationship with the one true God who created you. God has such an incredible plan for your life... believing in Him is only the very beginning.

Please talk to a friend today or contact anyone from the church team.

Church Vision
Our focus as a church is:

1. To care for and grow those within our fellowship through various expressions. We call this 'Church Life.'
