Welcome

We gladly welcome you to our Christian family, trusting that if you are
seeking Christ you will find Him here, if sorrowing you will receive

Our Mission

By God’s grace and the power of the Holy Spirit, the family of
Our Redeemer will strengthen ourselves spiritually to bring all people into harmony with God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
