… we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, …

Romans 5:3-5
Bronze Crucifix

For Christians, hope is the result because we know that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us; that God is with us in ALL things. Thus hope comes first even before suffering.

Robert Shaw, Pastor

A Tip for Parents

Having a pet, even a goldfish, provides lessons on caring for one another and for understanding how God cares for us.


As disciples of Jesus Christ we give so that we may dedicate the whole of our lives by sharing a portion of what we earn with others.

Although COVID-19 has forced us to curtail all groups, meetings, classes, … we continue other ministries.

Giving to the church on a regular basis has never been easier. Use on-line giving through your bank or click the Give Now button and set up a recurring “e‑tithe” to make an automatic offering every week, month or year, in whatever amount you choose.
