It helps to know someone.

We’ve provided this page for one reason: to give you first points of contact if you need them. We don’t expect you to memorize our names, of course. But, hopefully we’ve taken some of the awkwardness out of that first (or third) visit by simply introducing ourselves. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The elders and their wives are the spiritual guides of our congregation. They’re chosen by the congregation for who they are and based on certain sections of the Bible that detail leadership qualities essential for this role.

Elders


While we rely on volunteers certain aspects of our work require ongoing attention. Full and part-time ministers and staff guide daily operations.
