Like most church congregations, we worship, study, pray and care for one another. Our passion is working together to try to make the world a better place. By doing tangible, concrete things that improve people’s lives, we honor God and live out what Jesus meant when he said, “Love God and love your neighbor.” If that resonates with you, we hope you’ll come visit.

Sermon Series for Lent

Giving It Up

Many of us give up certain things for the forty days of Lent, and doing so can be a very beneficial thing for us. This sermon series takes that idea one step further to talk each week about things that God wants us to give up, things like control, expectations, superiority, and preconceptions.
