a message from the minister

At this very moment

You know when you visit a website, see fancy images and read great descriptors but… the place is not all that it portrays? Well, this is not the case. We are the real deal, and we are truly grateful that you are visiting us online at this very moment. At this very moment, you are doing what many will do, checking us out. This very moment is made for you whether this is an “accidental” visit or an intentional enquiry. Whether you are a returning visitor or you have never heard of us, there is a space especially for you within this faith community. You are meant to be reading this, right now! And so, I wonder… What will you do next? Will you call? Will you drop-in for a visit? Volunteer? Come in for worship or log on for online services? 

Whatever you decide to do, I am excited to know that perhaps, just maybe, we will become friends – a family of choice. Welcome friend! Welcome!
