Current Sermon Series

One of the best places to go in Scripture for making a fresh start are the chronicles and prophecies of the return of Israel from exile. As we examine Zechariah, Zerubbabel, Ezra, Haggai, Nehemiah, and Malachi, we will see that we can do the Kingdom work in confidence that God is at work in, with, and through His people. Join us for this journey of new beginnings!

The Word of Life…

“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1:1-3)
