Worship

Sunday Sermon -March 3rd

Are you going through the motions of religion? It can happen subtly and without our realizing it. What was once a trust of the heart in Christ, now has become more of a religious obligation to satisfy or a self-chosen religion that serves our needs. Christ, however, calls us to the powerful reality that He is present to save us through the message of the cross.

Join us on this 3rd Sunday in Lent as we continue our series, Tested and Tried, with the message, "Not Our Works, But Christ's Work for Us" based John 2:13-22; Exodus 20:1-17; and1 Corinthians 1:18-25.

6-Week Study - The Rapture, Israel & the Book of Revelation

Join us as we continue to work through a 6-week study with Pastor Chris on; The Rapture, Israel & the Book of Revelation. This study will meet in the Worship Center weekly, following Sunday Worship, until March 3rd.
