Who we are



Pastor's Assistant


Your friends and neighbors

Jesus people

This is what you should know about our church – You’ll like it here! It’s a place where you’ll be welcomed and loved. 


We're your friends and neighbors, loving God and loving others. It's what we do. Think of it as "Learning, Serving, and Connecting." 


The more you learn about God, the more joy you'll have. His love really does transforms lives.


The more you serve others, your happiness grows. It’s fun and rewarding and people will learn about Jesus through you. 


The more you connect with other Jesus people and with God, you'll get cheered and recharged. When we spend time together as a church family, love and encouragement abound.


So when you come here, you'll feel good. And the really beautiful thing? You’ll do a lot of good, too. So come visit and get to know us. 


God welcomes you here and so do we.

Beth Duckworth


Our local shepherd

Most of us call her Pastor Beth, but one day at church a little boy couldn’t remember her name and called her Miss Jesus. Well let’s just say Pastor Beth got all teary-eyed over that sweet child. 


It's easy to understand why he called her Miss Jesus. She is our local good shepherd. 


She teaches with enthusiasm, preaches with spirit, guides with gentle direction, comforts with a quiet presence, loves with a generous heart, and prays like a warrior. 


You’ll find her at our monthly Free Community Meals happily visiting with our guests. On Wednesday evenings she’s challenging us to deeply explore the Scriptures. Stove-top popcorn is her specialty at our Game Nights. Around town, you’ll find her walking her dogs and photographing the local beauty. Go to the assisted living home and there she’ll be setting up a fun photo shoot with the residents, complete with red feather boas, hearts, and sparkly hats. 

Behind all that fun and feather boas are a Master of Divinity and a woman who has been on fire for Jesus since she was a child. 


We love her, and we love that fire.  You will too.

Debbie Robbins

Pastor's Assistant

Our cheerful blessing

There are a thousand jobs that need doing around here and as Pastor Beth’s assistant, Debbie finds herself in the center of many of them. 


She seems to know almost everything and for the rest, she finds the answers. Looking for something that’s disappeared?  Need something by yesterday? Have an out-of-left-field question like where’s the chili recipe for 100? She is a ready-to-help answer machine of unending cheerfulness. 


And just in case she doesn’t stay busy enough with us, you’ll find her working all over town, volunteering her time and talents at the local schools, and spreading cheerful blessings wherever she goes.


Do you want a cheerful blessing like Debbie? Somebody with an unrelenting work ethic and a willingness to serve? If it were possible, we’d be glad to clone Debbie for you. You could have the clone; but we’re keeping our treasured original.
