“[Christ Our Advocate] My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;” — 1 John 2:11989. Powered by BibleGateway.com.
This Sunday: Church = Verb. The early church didn't have buildings. They didn't have endowment funds. They didn't have full time staff. What they had was the fire of the Holy Spirit. They had purpose, passion, and power. They gave everything they had. They devoted themselves to the Way of Christ. Their entire lives changed. God didn't want us "go to church." God wanted us to go church. What would that look like? Join us this Sunday at 10:30 for Switched On Lives: Church is a Verb. ... See MoreSee Less
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your path." Proverbs 3. Our culture encourages us to "lean in," to work harder and smarter, to embrace challenge, to push forward. But our God calls us to "lean on," to rely on Him, to trust in His wisdom and not our own.

Come to worship this week at 10:30 to hear about what it means to "Lean On." ... See MoreSee Less

Many of us feel a great deal of stress and even shame around the subject of money.

Come and hear wisdom from Proverbs about finances, this Sunday at 10:30, with a message entitled: Words to the Wise ~ Smoke, Vinegar, and Lions? ... See MoreSee Less
