Welcome to Colfax Center!  It our desire that you experience the profound sweetness and glory of Jesus Christ.  We long to be a community where Christ is treasured and people are pursued.  So if you are hungry, and thirsty, and weary, and bruised, and broken, then hear these words of our Lord Christ:

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).”

It is our prayer that you may, “Taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him (Psalm 34:8).”
