Maintaining the Home Base for Mission
We love to come here on Sunday and during the week as members of a family of faith. A church is really nothing more than the people of Christ who gather for worship and mission, but it certainly helps to have a beautiful place in which to shelter our gathering and our ministry. It is invaluable, as well, to have personnel and office operations to support what we do as a congregation.
