“Doubt...a Journey to Deeper Faith: Doubt About God"

Coming up on August 27, 2023

The world sees and interacts with doubt as a lack of confidence or an insecurity about a situation or decision. Yet, from a faith perspective doubt is not a weakness but a significant element of our spiritual growth. Abraham and Sarah, Moses, the disciples ,and others in scripture show us that doubt in our faith journey means that we are taking it seriously and not an indicator of faithlessness. So join us on Sunday as we start a new five-week series where we will explore, discover, and journey deeper in faith through doubt.  


Last Week in Worship

Reverend Jim Ewing finished out a four-part series on God and Hollywood. Pastor Jim analyzed clips from "The Greatest Showman" and Luke 5, drawing parallels between our faith and culture.
