Back in June 2019 we began the first Phase of our Capital Campaign funded renovation. Our Capital Campaign, Lifting UP Our Community, is dedicated to transforming our church into a fully accessible facility by becoming ADA compliant. Our Church building will be going through this transition during the winter and some spring months. While we undertake this project, our church building will not be available for as many community events or outside groups to use. We apologize for the inconvenience and we look forward to serving our community even more when we finish this project!

To learn more about our Capital Campaign, visit our Website at, or call our Church Office to set up a meeting with one of our Capital Campaign Steering Committee Members.
