We are an Oasis Congregation for those whose churches have chosen to disaffiliate. If you’re looking for a church home or just a place to catch your breath – you are welcome here. We look forward to seeing what God has in store for us as we continue to pursue our mission of knowing Christ, sharing His love, and helping others to know Him.

Stocking the Little Food Pantry
We encourage you to take action and help those in need during this season of giving. Consider donating non-perishable food items that are safe for pantry storage, or other essential items that can make a difference in someone’s life. Your generosity and kindness can help make this winter a little bit warmer for those who are struggling. Let’s come together as a community and spread hope and positivity during these challenging times.
