St. Michael has experienced significant growth over the years. A new sanctuary was built in 1997. Shortly thereafter, it became evident that adding a second pastor to the staff was needed. In 2009, another expansion project was completed which included a 300-seat fellowship hall with a larger, state-of-the-art kitchen and administrative offices. We also remodeled the old fellowship hall into a 10 classroom educational wing; created a music ministry suite and expanded the narthex area housing The Archangel Café.
All of our facilities are wheel chair accessible and our sanctuary is equipped with an audio induction loop assistive listening system. Those with a hearing aid only need to switch it to "T" to enjoy dramatically improved sound.
There are many ways you can get involved in our growing faith community. We have activities to suit every preference and interest ... music programs, Christian education, youth ministries, senior groups, men's and women's groups, sports programs and more! We invite you to browse these opportunities under the MINISTRIES button above.
