As part of the Church of the Nazarene we believe in local and global missions. Not only does this mean spreading the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ, it means being the hands and feet of the church. We partner with local ministries as well as global Nazarene ministries. For more information visit: Nazarene Missions International and Nazarene Compassionate Ministries.
Our worship is carefully planned, and full of meaningful symbols and practices that point us to Christ. Worship themes are chosen along with the Christian Calendar, and with scriptural themes in mind that connect with the discipleship life of the church and the sermon. Music is at times traditional, other times contemporary, and always connected to scriptures being studied that day. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved. If you are interested in reading scripture, singing or playing and instrument, participating in the choir, operating sound and video, helping with offering and communion, etc please contact Pastor Jeremy Smallwood.
