Growing old friends, strong marriages and healthy families doesn't happen by accident. If you have allowed your plan for your life to get in the way of God's plan for your life, then make a decision this year to step back into a community that is ready and willing to walk with you as you find your calling and live your purpose.
Our goal every day is to make sure that you leave the church feeling better than you did when you walked in. We are committed to helping you feel connected, cared for, hopeful and engaged all in an environment that is reminiscent of what your heart remembers that church should feel like. No matter where you are, or where you’ve been, join us this week and experience the difference that being connected to a real community can make.
St. Patrick was a remarkable person. Kidnapped from Wales and forced into slavery in Ireland at an early age, he escaped his imprisonment only to have God place on his heart a passion for the very people that had enslaved him. St. Patrick returned to Ireland, and the movement that he founded brought into existence one of the most meaningful and widely accepted versions of Christianity ever to exist.
As one of the only denominations to have originated in the British Isles, join us this St. Patrick Sunday as we celebrate our Celtic Christian heritage. Our very own Cheri Lemons will be joining us to offer special music made popular by the group Celtic Woman and our liturgy will be taken entirely from the Celtic Tradition of Christianity.
If you happen to have familial ties to the British Isles, then join us in showing your Celtic pride by wearing your family tartan to church that Sunday. Whether your family hails from Wales, Ireland, or Scotland, wear your tartan ties, vests, sashes, scarves, skirts, or kilts to church that Sunday and enjoy celebrating our shared Celtic heritage!

Don’t have any tartan wear?
Don’t know if your family name has a tartan?
The wonderful thing about Celtic culture is that it is so accepting. Whether your current surname is of Welsh, Irish, or Scottish origin, or whether the surname of one of the ancestors in your family tree is, you are still entitled to wear you family tartan.
If you don’t know which tartan belongs to your family there are some easy ways for you to find out. The websites below will help you to find out whether or not your family name(s) is/are associated with a tartan. You can also order a number of different tartan related products and have them shipped directly to your home. Our inclusion of these websites does not indicate an endorsement, just a resource to help you on your Celtic journey!
If you need help, just contact the church office. We’re glad to help you out!

i.e. McDonald should be entered as MacDonald)
We Want to Know What Your Priorities Are!
Our leadership team has been participating in a visioning process that has identified some key areas of opportunity within our church. However, because we serve as representatives of the entire congregation, we want to solicit feedback from you about what you see as the top facilities-related priorities for our congregation. Please take time to discuss the options below with your family, friends, or small group. Then, fill out this short survey by clicking on the link below and answering the questions.
Thank you for helping us to make our church home a better place to serve!
