Communication with God is vital to teaching and learning the way of King Jesus. Joyfully, we serve a God who loves to communicate with His children.

We come to Him with great expectation, humble and listening, protected and protecting each other. As we grow into a prayer saturated community we will experience deeper intimacy with God, stronger relationships within our congregation, the demonstration of God’s presence to our neighbors, closer relationships with other faith communities, and the breathing of new life into the world at large.
