About the Church:

At Swift Creek we are all about making connections. The most important connection is the one we can have with God through faith in Jesus Christ. Once that connection is established we want to make connections in our homes and with the rest of the church family. A strong church is built by people of strong faith and individual homes where God is worshiped and honored. Finally we as a church want to connect with our community. We want to share our faith and meet the needs of those around us. We hope you will come and join us for worship and begin to make the connection!
