Welcome!  And heartfelt greetings to you in the name of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, who says,  

“I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
(John 16:33 ESV)

"Keep Our Ministry Growing"

A special campaign in 2015-2016 to eliminate our remaining building debt so that we can shift our focus to new ministries.

By God's grace, we reached our goal in July and have successfully paid off our mortgage!  Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!

A special "mortgage-burning" ceremony was held at the conclusion of our annual Mission Festival service on Sunday, October 2.
