FINGERPRINTS...WE LEAVE THEM EVERYWHEREThey tell a story, our story, as people and as a church. Fingerprints reveal that we have been there because part of us has been left behind. Our fingerprints reveal the fact that we have touched people's lives, communities and organizations.Our new ministry priorities for the next five years (2012-2017) will require that our hands get dirty, our hearts love more deeply and our spirits act courageously.

And when we do, together we will see the power of God and His gospel.
