Our Mission

Our mission is "To See Jesus and Cause Him to Be Seen."

We have said we want that mission to be accomplished "in my life, in my home, in our church, in our School, in our community." May God enable us to accomplish that mission as He feeds and cares for us and we care for one another and our community.


President Harrison said it well, "Now is the time to be generous". That is true both to support the proclamation of the Gospel and to care for others. Your regular offerings and other gifts may be mailed to the church, dropped off at the church office, or placed in the offering plate at worship services.  We continue to encourage your consideration of the Joyful Response electronic contribution program.  Contact the church office regarding Joyful Response

God’s Peace be with you,

Keith Klusmeyer, Congregational Chairman

Bob Gooding, Chairman of the Board of Elders

Pastor Matt Riley

Visitation Pastor Marlin Rempfer
