Current Sermon Series: Fear Factors
Exodus 3:1-15, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8, 13-17, Matthew 8:23-27
Current Sermon Series – Fear Factors
Sometimes it seems like our lives are governed by fear. We fear bad things happening. We fear death. We fear the unknown. The power that fear has over our lives is real, and yet it is something that God wants to set us free from! Come join us for our new series Fear Factors, as we explore these topics and more and see how Jesus brings us peace through it all.
Next Sermon Series
Christmas time, or what the ancient church has always called Advent, is a time when we celebrate and look forward to getting presents! This year we are going to focus on the greatest gift of all, the presence of Jesus Christ in our lives. Discover how his presence enables us to be present in the lives of others. Join us for Presence: How to show up like Jesus, beginning on November 17th.

For anyone burned out, disenchanted, or seeking a fresh honest-to-God encounter, Flesh will invigorate your faith. Books will be available through the church for suggested donation of $10 soon.
