The Shed Project was a vision birthed from the leadership of our church that became a reality in 2014.

The Shed was built from an old barn donated to us situated in the very heart of our town. There was a real need for a facility where the community could come and know security and support. Ever since we opened our doors we have been blessed with supporting and journeying through life with so many. We seek each day to be that to every person with whom we meet.
