Read his story


Filled with the Holy Spirit, he gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. “Look,” he said, “I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” (Acts 7:55-56)

The name of our congregation was submitted by Betty Rupprecht and selected on November 2, 1952. Like our namesake, we seek to serve and bear witness to our Lord Jesus Christ in all that we say and do.
