Our Church Facility

The Lord has blessed us with a wonderful facility in which to worship him, fellowship and grow in our faith. Built in 1925 (See Our History), our building has recently gone through a host of changes.

We also completed a multi-purpose room called the Social Hall for fellowship events, receptions and recreation, including basketball, volleyball, ping-pong, dodge ball, etc. This room has a ceiling mounted video projector and sound system.


Getting In: On week days, it's best to use the entrances off the parking lot -- either the southwest entrance or the accessible entrance.  Both have a doorbells and intercoms.  On Sundays, all entrances are open.

The kitchen and Social Hall are in the center of the first floor.
