Founded in 1959, we are a congregation of roughly 200 people who worship together, love and support each other, and seek the welfare of our community through service and outreach.


Our mission is to glorify and enjoy God, to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, and to express the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. In response to the love of God, we will worship God, educate ourselves, care for each other, and serve our neighbors in the community and the world.


As a non-profit, we rely on the generosity of members and friends to fund our ministry. To make a gift, please contact the Finance Secretary. We are prepared to receive a variety of assents. Gifts may be made to memorial funds, the annual fund, endowment funds, capital improvements, preschool scholarships, or a number of other needs approved by the Session. All gifts are tax-deductible and a giving statement will be provided.


Our community is grateful to have people who are new, and other people who have been around for years. We are blessed with a range of ages, races, orientations, family units, economic conditions, and political views. We are committed to being an inclusive community in all the ways that we can.


To be a member of a Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation, one must only profess faith in Jesus Christ. Those who are ordained as Ministers of the Word and Sacrament, Ruling Elders, and Deacons make additional professions which are outlined in the Book of Order. Broadly, Presbyterians emphasize the centrality of Scripture, the sovereignty of God, and Grace that cannot be earned or taken away.


During the last pastoral transition, the congregation undertook a lengthy evaluation of its shared faith, interpretation of Scripture, and culture. This resulted in the adoption of core values that you will see in all that we do:


Hospitality, &



We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), a denomination that values multi-layered accountability, shared leadership, and a diversity of voices. We are accountable to Northeast Georgia Presbytery. Each year, our congregation elects Elders and Deacons. Elders form the Session, which oversees all aspects of the work and ministry of the congregation. Deacons are responsible for the care of our congregation and those beyond our congregation.
