Hurting People Loved Here

We have an old sign in front of our church that says "Hurting People Loved Here"

These are not simply words on a sign, but an attitude and culture of our church. It is our passion.

That sign isn't the prettiest thing. It has seen it's share of storms and vandalism over the years. The paint is faded in places and parts of it are worn. We leave it that way on purpose, because it still has great value. There have been numerous people who have seen that sign passing by, come in, and experienced the love of Jesus in a profound way.

Maybe you are like that sign. You have had your share of storms and vandalism in your life on many levels. You may be in a place where you don't feel like you are worth much to anyone. But the fact is you are valuable to God. And you are valuable to us.

Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

Everyone experiences seasons of pain in their life where they need love, help and encouragement. We seek to do that here and have been doing it long enough to understand why Jesus said, “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matt. 25:40). We have also discovered that healing occurs when hurting people love and minister to other hurting people.

If you are hurting, this is the place for you.

One of our members expressed it this way:

Perfect and Pretty? Not so much.

Seeking and Serving? That's us.

Come with questions.

Come with pain.

Come with despair.

We will accept you, love you, and walk with you in the name and power of God.

If you are hurting today, the first thing we can do for you right now is to pray for you.
