"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot
be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a
basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that
they may see your good works and give glory to your
Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 5:14-16).
We believe that our Lord Jesus has placed us here to
serve the people of our community in His name.
Therefore, we are always working to organize high-
quality events, by which He might love and care for
the people around us. Below you will find a list of
our currently scheduled events. Please check back for updates as they become available!
