In need of personal counseling?
We offer to both members and regular attendees, up to 5 sessions a year with our on-staff counseling pastor and licensed marriage and family therapist, Dr. Don Welch.  Because of the limited availability of session times, we desire to reserve this resource for those who are a part of our church family.  A fee of $5 will be required at the scheduling of the session.

It is our goal here to provide the tools, resources and support you need, both biblically and professionally, to find healing and wholeness in your life and relationships.  We hope this ministry blesses and enriches your life.

Caring Meals is a ministry designed for you to provide an occasional meal to a person/family that is experiencing a medical issue due to surgery, accident, death in family, ongoing illness, etc. Your generosity with a meal will not only bless the family involved, but you will also reap bountiful rewards with your gift of giving. Don’t cook? Not a problem… you can always pick up a meal at a restaurant or deli.

Prayer is one of the most practical ways we can support one another …Eph 6:18 (Message) “In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out”…. 

If you are not part of a group in the church where people can pray for you, please click on the online prayer button. We count it a privilege to be able to support you in prayer.

Baptism is an outward sign of your decision to follow Christ. It is a public declaration of your faith in Christ and your decision to live for him. 

Why get baptized?
Baptism is a visual and symbolic demonstration of a person’s faith in Jesus Christ. It signifies that his former way of life has been put to death and depicts the raising up of a new life committed to following Christ. Romans 6:4

Jesus Modeled It – Matt 3:13-17
Jesus Commanded It – Matt 28:16-20
Jesus Desires Us to Share Publicly Matt 10:32, Rom 10:9

Who Should be Baptized?
Anyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as Savior

How do I get baptized? 
We will walk you through the steps for writing out your faith story. Once we receive your story we will schedule your baptism.  If you have any questions, feel free to email Paul Rischer |
