Join us for Culture vs. Christ Sermon Series!                                                 

During the months of June and part of July our Sermon series will be “Culture vs. Christ”
“The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings life and power to all of those who believe it, receive it, and follow it. The message delivered in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus brings about freedom and new life with the strength to be unique in our identity and courageous in the face of cultural norms. In this sermon series, we will dive into Jesus’s call to the church to become His disciples by pressing into his ways rather than the ways of the culture around us.”

June 3 “Ability vs. Call”
June 10 “Consumer vs. Relationship”
June 17 “Results vs. Faithfulness”
June 24 “Self Promotion vs. Mutuality”
