 Furry Friends Pet Food BankPepsi Refresh Grant Winner!

We may be a small congregation, but we are passionate about our mission work. One of our most successful missions is the Furry Friends Pet Food Bank. We collect and hand out pet food to needy families so that they can afford to keep their pets in these hard economic times. We need your help to spread the word about our pet food bank.

We need your donations of pet food, volunteers to help distribute food the last Saturday of each month and of course, help with funding. Please contact us if you'd like to help!

Relay for Life

The next Relay for Life 2017 is already underway and getting ready for an even more successful year than the last! Please join us in our continued fight against cancer!

At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!



Church Bells Ring in Downtown Ontario

Bell Tower Renovation
For years, the old bell was silent. Some say that it cracked the day Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Some said the bell had been removed. There were many rumors, but one thing was clear: no one had seen the bell in years. Today, the bell has been rediscovered and the crack repaired with JB Weld. To augment the big cast iron bell, we have added an electronic Carillon that chimes the hours and plays hymns. Church bells once again ring in downtown Ontario.
