Worship Series - OUTLANDISH - June 16 through July 14, 2019 - In this series, we will learn about faith, boldness, kindness, thankfulness and hope. We’ll follow Daniel into the lion’s den, take a stand with Queen Esther in the Babylonian court, help the Good Samaritan do the right thing, and then join Jesus to heal ten lepers and encourage two friends in grief. Today it may seem outlandish to turn these words into practices everywhere we live, work and play.  #BeOutlandish #BeResurrection

Summer Preaching Series | This is Our Story | July 28 - August 18 - We all share a common story. We share The Story of our long history of being in relationship with this God we know as Love, a love we understand through Jesus. Over four Sundays this summer, we will hear four from preachers, who will preach from one of their favorite Bible stories. As they do they will share their personal story. We welcome Rev. Darnell Fennell, David Mandell, Dr. Alex Byrd, and Rev. Hannah Fitch. Each will bring their unique perspective, style and insight. Each week in the eNews we will feature a different preacher leading up to the beginning of the series in July.
