Meet the Pastor

Pastor Dr. Mitch Van Metre shares messages with those in attendance and online ranging from going out and doing God's work for others, to how to grow closer to Him and live in a relationship personally with Him.

Our blended style service starts at 9:15am and our Modern Worship service begins at 10:45 am.

We do hope you join us and grow closer to God

with us, while trying to reach out and make the world a better place.

Jesus Christ is the world’s singular saving Lord. No one comes to the Father but through Him. The Bible is God’s Holy Word. Christians are called to live a holy life which             includes the Biblical standard of chastity in singleness and fidelity in marriage. Since all fall short of the Glory of God, all are accepted and ministered to in the name of Jesus Christ.   

  • We value the Lordship of Christ as head of the Church and the Guiding Light in our lives.

  • We value Praise and Worship where we experience God through Word and Sacraments, inspiring music, personal and corporate prayer, invitation to ministry, mission, and stewardship of our lives for Jesus Christ.

  • We value the power of Prayer and encouraging its thoughtful use in all that we do.

  • We value Bible-centered preaching and teaching in the Reformed tradition in which we experience

  •  God personally and by which the Word of God becomes a reality in our lives.

  • We value Genuineness which encourages us to be truthful with each other and with God enabling us to         share life and community at the deepest level.

  • We value Mission -- God's calling us to the work of spreading the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ by helping those in material and Spiritual need.

  • We value Evangelism through which people are encouraged to know God's unconditional love and marvelous grace through a personal and transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.

  • We value Family as God's institution where Christian virtues are taught, nurtured, and lived in everyday        lives.

  • We value Fellowship where we discover Christ in the faith community as we worship, witness and do ministry and mission together.

  • We value Caring as the Holy Spirit empowers us to serve each other, the community, and the world.

  • We value the Theology of the Reformed Tradition and the Polity of a traditional PresbyteriaChurch.
