Pastor Debbie Grohman

Since 2013, Pastor Debbie Grohman has led our congregation.  Pastor Debbie contributes an abundance of knowledge and talent to our church community.  Her sermons provoke thought by encouraging both active participation and silent reflection.

Mission

Our congregation pursues mission in various ways. 

  • The popular weekly produce table offers free seasonal fruits and vegetables to the community through our partnership with the Headwater Food Hub. 

  • The Shared Table is a free community meal offered the last Wednesday of the month from 5:30-7:00pm.

  • Along with other area churches, we support the Food Pantry and Clothing Closet. 

  • The longest-running mission effort we're known for is our annual week of service with Reach Mission Trips.

Handicapped Accessibility

The church building features a handicapped accessible restroom on the lower level of the church and an elevator lift. Large print Bibles and Hymnals are available, upon request.  Designated handicapped parking spaces available.
