Community Space (Building Use)

A major part of the way we serve our community is by opening up our building and outdoor spaces for community groups and other needs. We host multiple recovery groups, scouting troops, a homeschool cohort, and other faith communities as well as one-time events such as parties, showers, weddings, and funerals. We have multiple meeting areas that vary in size for large or small gatherings, including two large ‘community rooms’ equipped with kitchens.
