Ministry is serving. Following the example of Jesus Christ, we seek ways to offer forgiveness, the begining of healing and reconciliation. We hear His call to make changes in our lives that encourage wholeness and wellness. We strive to be a community formed and founded in Christ. We are seeking and discovering ways to live lives in praise of God and in service to others. We welcome any who will share the excitement of the journey with us!
