Interim Pastor: Matt Collins
Pastor Tim Peterson recently retired from the senior pastor position and we are asking God to provide the next man who will lead our congregation going forward. Pastor Tim will be deeply missed, but we pray for the very best as he moves into the next phase of his life.
Meanwhile, we are blessed to have Matt Collins filling the senior pastor duties as the search for the next permanant pastor continues.
