Current Sermon Series – Seasons: Death To Life

As we move into a new season of the church year we shift our focus from new beginnings to preparation for Easter.  Here we will deal with issues of sin and death in the world that transition into life and victory through the resurrection of Christ.  Come join us for this important season.
