Pastor Raymond Eck comes to us from Christ UMC, near Prices Corner, DE. He and his family have been active in that church for the past 40 years. In 2014 he became a part of the ministry team pastoring three local churches. He attended the Certified Lay Academy at Wesley Church and graduated in 2015. Pastor Eck has been Director of Music and Co-Chair of Missions and Outreach programs.

What Do We Teach?

We use both the Old Testament and the Gospels as the foundation for our faith and the inspiration for our daily lives. We put those teachings into practice at home and at work.


What Are Our Core Values?

Just as Jesus said in the Beatitudes, blessed are the poor and the hungry. Our mission is not just to love one another, but to make sure we spread the love of the Gospels everywhere.
