Ephesians – a cosmic shift

The mystery is revealed. That was Paul’s message to the church at Ephesus. The mystery of Christ’s redemption is a moment in time that involves a cosmic shift – Jesus Christ has given us a new identity and a new way of living. Nothing will be the same after Him. Sometimes we recognize our need for that cosmic change in life, while other times we shrug off Christ as semi-important. As we study Ephesians during the season of Lent, you […]

Athletic Ambitions

This year we are planning an exciting service on the day of the big game. Wear your favorite jersey – any sport is okay. Scripture has some great game day encouragement that might just inspire you to get the athlete inside of you off the couch and running the race of life.

It’s all about what we can do to make ourselves better people. The result is that churches, health clubs, debt counselors, and vitamin shops do a booming business.

No Service on 12/31/17
