I come from a small church. Will I feel comfortable at your church?

Yes. Our church began with a handful of people in 1975. Over the years, we have experienced the Lord's hand of blessing in the size of our membership. He has added thousands of people to our church family. Through all of this, we have sought to remain just that - a big family. When you visit our church, you will find a friendly welcome and down-to-earth Christians with a love for their church family. You and your family will be shown exactly where to go, and you will find that our church really isn't that "big" after all. Through our individual Sunday school classes, you will be able to "connect" to a smaller group in our church as you begin to assimilate into our family.
