Our members and guests typically dress casual. You will find anything from Coat and Tie to flip flops and T-shirt. Dress modest but to your comfort.

Do you know for certain where you will spend eternity? The Bible records Jesus as saying, "God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16 NIV) . . . but what does that mean? God's Plan is that we spend eternity with Him. We receive eternal life as a free gift from a loving God. "The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
