This year of 2017 we celebrate our 160th anniversary!

In 1857 Rev. Thomas Cotton, a Methodist Circuit Rider, held services in private homes

and in 1861/62 a church building was built.

Many changes have been made over the years to the physical building

but, by God's good grace, the spirit remains the same!


We were treated to an original composition by Don Peterson during September 4th's (2016) Worship Service.

To listen to "Sophie's Melody ", click on "We are Inspired" on the left and open "Recent Sermons".
