DENOMINATIONAL AFFILIATION | 2022

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. — Isaiah 43:18-19

Congregational Vote Update
Thank you for your interest in the special called church conference held on Sunday afternoon, August 28, 2022. More than 175 people, filled the Sanctuary  to cast ballots in the vote after completing the required period of denominational discernment that began on June 19, 2022.

The ballots were collected, counted and certified by two independent tellers.

170 members voted in favor of disaffiliation — 92.4% of the total ballots cast.

Following the vote, Senior Pastor, Wesley Duncan commented, “I am filled with a deep sense of gratitude  — for the church's faithfulness and bold support of our ministry together. I'm thankful for all those that showed up. I'm thankful for  them filling our worship space. And thankful for casting a ballot. Our congregational vote was a success because of this church's  support of our shared mission to Make more and stronger disciples of Jesus Christ, and that will never change."

With this vote behind us, we are truly able to move forward in faith.
