Our mission is to make and mature disciples for the transformation of the world!
Our church was founded in 1832 and was served prior to that by a Circuit Rider. We have purchased an adjacent property and developed J.I.M.’s Place, a multi-purpose facility that serves the church and greater community. In 2000 we remodeled our fellowship hall and church kitchen, and we built a new multi-purpose worship addition in 2009. The new addition includes a “living room” which is a gathering space. The “Life Center” is a multi-purpose worship area, a caterer’s kitchen, restrooms and the program staff offices.
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!
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.
