We believe God has us in the palm of His hand. We are in transition. We are praying, seeking, listening.

Our beloved former pastor, Sam Belz, has accepted another call in GA at the end of August, so we are in transition to an interim pastor, until our Search Committee continues to pray, review, interview and then call a pastor.
