As an urban church on the “Last Frontier”, we have the privilege of providing and hosting a wide range of ministries. We are an active church in the wider community and our central location makes our facility a natural place to gather for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, a children’s choir, and a community lunch program. Our church community cares for each other with prayer, meals and help in times of crisis, a wonderful children’s program and support for young parents and military families. Many in our community live far from family and our pastoral care provides the support and love in times of joy or crisis.

PRAYER CHAIN - these members provide continual prayer support for all concerns. Call the church office with your prayer requests.
