Who We are at The United Church
The United Church is a strong community of Christians who seek to glorify God. Our mission is, "That All Might Know, Love, and Follow The Lord Jesus Christ as Their Personal Lord and Savior." We seek to do this in a number of ways:
We worship the Triune God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24). Worship involves submitting ourselves to God as the Spirit empowers us.
We must grow in our faith, training ourselves to distinguish good from evil. (Hebrews 5:11-6:2, 1 Peter 2:2, 1 Corinthians 3:1-3)
Jesus sends his followers out on mission for God. We must carefully discern how God might call us to invite others into His Kingdom. (Luke 10:1-20, John 20:21)
As a Christian family, we must bear one another's burdens (Galatians 6:2). Walking alongside each other to meet spiritual and physical needs is at the center of who we are.

What a warm and welcoming church. The sanctuary is beautiful, and the people are very caring! It’s a traditional church with hymns and special music. During non-COVID, the children and youth programs are strong, and it looks like the adult ministry is strong as well.
I attended this congregation for ten years before relocating. Very warm, very friendly, and very active in missions work! The church is also very family oriented and offers programs for all age groups, and the leadership is exceptional!
One of the many things I love about our church is the youth program. There are always so many events that are super fun and memorable.
I knew this was the church where I wanted to worship God after my very first visit. I felt God’s love and peace, and was made very welcome. Our church is a family of loving, kind people and leadership.
I like my Learning to Worship class because I’m learning how to use my Bible and how to find the stories. I love singing hymns during service and learning about Ruth
