The Book of Esther gives hope and confidence to anyone who needs to know that God is present, powerful, and personal.

This story is one of God’s plan to redeem a people from death. And that is our story as well! That through our Lord Jesus Christ, our God saves.

What if everything in your life is leading toward an extraordinary display of God’s greatness? You’re not here by accident. There’s no such thing as coincidence. God has a plan, and you’re right in the middle of the action.

This sermon series will help you know and apply the encouraging and empowering truth that the invisible hand of God is at work.

There’s so much pain and hurt in our world, and sometimes it's hard to see anything else. But the sacrifice of Jesus shows us how to love. In this three-part series, we'll look at three ways to Love Like Jesus: by forgiving sinners, washing feet, and breaking bread.
The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus beckons each person to a transformed life in God’s kingdom. We are invited out of the shadows and into the light.

Worship recalibrates our hearts to God. To recalibrate means “to carefully adjust or align something again.” In this 4-week sermon series we will be encouraged to worship God as we go through the crazy twists and turns of life. The series begins on January 5, 2020.
Over the first four weeks of December we will be starting the celebration as we anticipate Christmas. We will use an Advent Wreath to help remind us of the growing light of Christ who is coming again in all fullness into the darkness of our world. Until the dawning of that great day, we watch and wait for Christ’s coming into the darkness of our world, lighting candles of hope, peace, joy, and love.

December 1 - Hope
December 8 - Peace
December 15 - Joy
December 22 - Love
