A Note From The Pastor
If you are visiting the Elko area, or live here and are looking for a church home, I would like to invite you to come and check us out. We try to remain sensitive to the stress of visiting a church. (See "What We Do" below - that might help!) Hopefully, you will find us friendly and sincerely interested in you. Our aim is that you will be warmly greeted and made to feel (somewhat) at home.
We promise, we will not ask you to stand and introduce yourself, or embarrass you in any way. We will not ask you to serve on a committee, or become a church trustee on your first visit.
We firmly believe that God has a church home in mind for you. Your job is to find it. If by chance we are the one - GREAT! WELCOME! Feel free to become part of a great church. If ours is not the church for you, please let us know what you are looking for in a church. We are familiar with the churches in the area, and we could probably point you in the right direction.
Our mission is to partner with you to help you grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
