Considering a Visit?
We’re glad you’re interested in visiting our church. As a community of faith we strive to glorify God daily, grow as disciples, and serve people. We hope you will join us during a Sunday service and consider making us your church family.
What is the service like?
Our worship service has three parts: we approach God, we listen to God, and we respond to God. Throughout there are prayers, Scripture is read, there are responsive readings, the minister shares a conversation with the children, and the music is a combination of classic hymns and more contemporary songs. Everything you need to follow along is projected on a screen and printed in a bulletin. You are welcome to participate as fully as you’d like, or to simply sit back and observe.
What about my children?
We begin each service by enjoying a time of singing and praying together. From September to June, following a conversation with our Pastor, children from JK to Grade 6 are dismissed weekly for Sunday School. There is a nursery available for those not yet old enough for Sunday School. The service is broadcast into this room.
Accessing the building
To enter the church, you can use either the front door or side entrance. For those that would like to avoid stairs, please use the side entrance and ask anyone you see for directions to the elevator. We would be happy to help you.
There are handicap parking spaces by the side entrance to the building and close to the stairs to the main entrance.
After the service…
Following the service you are invited to join us for coffee, tea and snacks downstairs in our Fellowship Hall. Someone will be happy to help you find it.

What we Believe
The Bible is the uniquely inspired written word of God and has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
God is one in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit and He is the sovereign Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, and Judge of all things.
Human beings are made in the image of God and are called to love and obey Him. However, because of our sin (our active disobedience or passive indifference to God and His will) we stand fallen and condemned before Him.
But God, because of His great love for us, began a process of redemption which culminated in the coming of Jesus Christ,
who is truly God and truly human, was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life and died on the cross to reverse the curse of sin and make our forgiveness possible. He rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven and now reigns at the right hand of God the Father.
Salvation (forgiveness of sin and new life in Christ) is offered freely to all as a gift from God. In order to possess that gift, each person must receive it by putting his/her faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour.
The Holy Spirit fills the life of every Christian. From the time we are forgiven, the Holy Spirit works within us to increase our faith and to change us so that we become more like Jesus. The Spirit also gives each believer gifts that are to be used in service of God and his ways.
