We desire to create UNITY through Community. The Banquet Ministry hosts monthly potlucks and organizes other fellowship events centered on connection, food, fellowship, and fun. Events include the Christmas Party, Pastor’s Appreciation Day, Passover, and other special events focused on community.


Would you like to join the ministry to help coordinate, setup, and lead the monthly potlucks? Can you bring fun and joy to the monthly gatherings?

Hebrews 12:26-29 “And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the Heaven.”

This expression, “Yet once more,” denoted the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
