The church’s current location has been occupied since 1947. This year the sanctuary and foyer were remodeled in order to prepare for this anniversary celebration.

Part of the church’s service to the community is providing weekend lunches for the students of the alternative high school at the Gray School campus, participating in the Baby Bottle Fundraiser for Coast Pregnancy Clinic and raising money for the local food bank.
