...Know, Grow, Go, Show, Sow
We are a congregation that enjoys worshiping and learning about God in a casual atmosphere, with lots of great activities for kids and teens, and many opportunities for you and your family to become active in a caring, Christian community.
We are a church where lives are transformed in Jesus Christ. The cross in our logo signifies the life we have in Him and that He is the foundation of all we do. The leaves represent the five aspects of our mission statement: To help persons KNOW Christ and GROW in their faith in order to GO outside our doors and SHOW His love through words and actions to SOW seeds of faith in others.
Rake Leaves - Reach Out - Make a Difference!
Join us as we lend a helping hand to our neighbors surrounding the church on Saturday, November 7, from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
As a group we will venture into neighborhoods within a few miles radius of the church, and rake leaves with the homeowners’ approval.
“We just want to get to know and serve our neighbors in a tangible way,” said Pastor Bob Stanley. “This is a great opportunity to make a large impact in a short amount of time. With Advent just around the corner, we can invite our neighbors to be a part of our Christmas and Advent Celebrations.”
Red and white signs will be placed in neighborhoods that the church will serve the week before the event, and red t-shirts will be given to all who wish to participate.

"I wish we had a Bible study for women.”
“I wish I had more opportunities to serve my community.”

Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims explains what Reformed churches believe and why they structure their life and worship as they do. In layman's terms, Rev. Hyde sketches the historical roots of the Reformed churches, their scriptural and confessional basis, their key beliefs, and the ways in which those beliefs are put into practice.

We all have a favorite book, one that has impacted our lives and made us a better person. As believers that one book is our Bible. Why are there so many Bible translations? Rose Publishing, Incorporated answers this question.
Well son, it’s all about the fundamentals”…those words still echo in my ears today, just as they did at basketball camp at Slippery Rock University as I entered ninth grade.
