The good news is simple: God is real, He will make a real difference in your life, and as a result, you can experience real community.

Though our congregation is diverse, we are united by a common life-changing experience with Christ. You can experience the difference Christ makes too, regardless of your background or situation.

Our Pastor Pastor Walt & Kerrie DeVries

Take a minute to look around and explore how you can connect with God, grow in community and make a difference by serving others at Glad Tidings Church.

Thanks for taking a couple of minutes to check out our website, especially the stories of the people that make up our church family. Glad Tidings isn’t a building, its a group of people who have devoted themselves to let God transform them. It really is amazing what can happen when all sorts of different people come together with just one thing in common…Jesus. Kerrie and I are here because we love God and we love people. Watching God change people’s lives, it doesn’t get any better than that! We hope to see you at church sometime soon.

— Pastor Walt & Kerrie DeVries
