We invite you to explore our web site and learn more about us. If you have questions, please give us a call or e-mail us. We worship at 9:00am and 11:00am each Sunday.

JIMS Place

Our church bought this property across High Ave. from the church building in 1992. It had been a car dealership and service center, but had been empty for several years. The vision was to create a low-cost place for community gatherings and meetings. It would also become a mission center for our church. Countless wedding receptions, dances for singles, community group meetings, regional church gatherings, and church dinners have happened there in the last 10 years. Literally thousands of people have been through our doors. What a blessing God has provided!

Our Clothes Closet is located in the front of J.I.M.’s Place. The Clothes Closet gives away about 45,000 items of clothing each year. The Clothes Closet is currently open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30am-11:30am.

The name ‘J.I.M.’s Place’ came from two sources. First, it stands for Jesus In Ministry, our goal of service to our community in the name of our Lord and Savior. Second, it is to honor Jim Reifenschneider, who put many hours of labor into developing this property for service to our church.
