New this week – July 29th

ADULT BIBLE STUDY – Jesus Lives in Us

July 15 to September 2.  All too often we’re disappointed in what the world has to offer yet we seem to forget that ONE person lived up to everything his family needed.  Jesus came into our world to fix it… and us!  He came to join us in our humanity to give us hope and a future, and in reality he himself and his life is the power source that we often forget to draw upon.  Quietly, and still forcibly, Jesus comes to each believer to bring truth and love; direction and purpose; answers to every question in life.  All over Scripture the person of Jesus comes to give life, and the longer we linger with him, the fuller our lives become.  Join us for an exploration of how a deeper relationship with Jesus puts everything into perspective.

SUMMER SERMON SERIES – Let the Lord’s Leader Listen – June 24 to September 2. 

Few leaders leave a legacy like King David, who has been called the Great King and Giant Slayer.  David was a flawed man, desperately in need of forgiveness –like all of us.  David was a faith-filled follower of the Lord, blessed with a heart of passion and wisdom.  He sang the songs of a shepherd king from his youth until his grave.  He sought God’s will and as Israel’s leader instilled God’s way.  Even in his fumbling and failures, he longed for the presence and power of the God to whom he’d gladly give all glory.  David is a remarkable study in man’s weakness presented alongside God’s strength and God’s saving grace.
