Our church building is a busy hub for the congregation and community.

In the evenings, adults are meeting for activities that include crafts and quilting, yoga, zumba, small care groups, United Methodist women circle groups, chancel choir rehearsal, and monthly committee meetings. Youth typically meet weekly and are invited to join the chancel choir. For those in the community, we offer meeting spaces for groups like girl scouts and brownie troops and library events. We invite you to participate in these events, and you are encouraged to add our website calendar to your own Google calendar by simply clicking on the blue plus sign on the bottom edge of the calendar.
