Our Vision: To be a beacon of faith, hope and love


A church's congregation is like a patchwork quilt, made up of a variety of unique, plain and fancy bits and pieces of whatever’s and whomever’s around — painstakingly, committedly, creatively and lovingly stitched together into a remarkable functional whole. It’s a work in progress, requiring the cooperation, contributions and collaboration of many and all.


This ceiling-to-floor quilt (shown below), representing current and past church members, was made by Vera C. Martin and Young Adults, and presented on May 13, 2012 during the Mother’s Day worship service.
