Our Mission


As a family of faithful Christians, we prayerfully serve and reach out to others with compassion - intentionally sharing the love of God through our actions and words.

We are a congregation primarily of seniors. Our ministries focus on serving seniors by and with seniors. 

Regardless of your age, we welcome all ages to come and worship with us.

As Disciples of Christ, we are a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world:

  • Gathering to worship God

  • Growing in faith

  • Serving through mission
