"Hero of the Universe" Sermon Series

Join us this Sunday for Pastor Steve's last message in the sermon series,  "Hero of the Universe:  No Lies, No Fake, Jesus".   How do you label Him? Many have made up things about Him that aren’t true.  And yet, He has not changed one bit.  In Him are NO lies and there is NO fake. He just IS Who He says He IS.  His name is JESUS, the undeniable Hero of the Universe.

Heart & Soul

Please join us for our Heart and Soul Prayer Gathering on Monday, October 18th at 6:30pm in the sanctuary.  Steve and Billy will co-lead with a dedicated time of worship and strategic corporate prayer as we seek God together for His Spirit to be poured out.  As John Wesley said, “I am convinced that God does nothing on earth, except in answer to abiding, fervent prayer!” After all, Jesus said, “… Apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5) We hope you will come Monday night as we gather to see God move, His Kingdom come and His will be done through our corporate prayers. It’s the “Hour of Power”!

College Prep for Parents

If you are a parent of high school age students, making the transition into college can be difficult and confusing.  This Wednesday night we are having a  conversation about how to help your students make this shift.  As students make the journey into adulthood, learn how to help them navigate that transition and prepare yourself for how that relationship will change.  We will meet in the church sanctuary on Wednesday, October 20th at 6pm.
