Visitor Information

Greetings and welcome to our website. We invite you to take a moment and tour the site as a way of getting to know us. We would also extend an invitation to join us Sunday mornings - worship at 10am, and check out the various activities throughout the rest of the week.

We invite you to come and allow God's Grace to compliment your journey of faith and life. With each gathering, we strive to blend and bridge the traditional with the contemporary, exploring the Scriptures and discerning their relevance and significance in our everyday lives.

Our ministry is blessed to have a staff which includes Reverend Tom Porter, Director of Music, Lydia Holsten, Christian Education Coordinator, Kara Hartman and our invaluable Office Coodinator Karen Jacobson, all eager to serve.

Meet Reverend Tom Porter

The reverend Tom Porter joined our congregation in February 2014. Upon graduating from Wittenberg University and Yale Divinity School, he served communities in Ohio and Wisconsin. His persona is best described as most personable, comfortable, delightful, engaging, spontaneously humorous and candid all while exhibiting empathy, total honesty, sincerity, and the essence of a deep and abiding dedication to his family, his church, and our God. His sermons are intellectual, educational, and Bible-based yet applicable in the context of today's busy lifestyle and diverse culture.

How good is that?! Please join us every Sunday and, you too, will be as entranced with this extraordinary and gifted man. Please contact Rev. Porter at
