Sunday Worship
Sermon Series: 1 Chronicles: A Living History

This series explores the history and theology of the book of 1 Chronicles. Through understanding the context and audience, we can understand the role God plays in history and our heritage, the importance of worship, and the importance of leading by example in the virtues that are a part of a godly life.

This Week: 1 Chronicles 9:1; 10:13; Ezra 6:14–15

Communion This Sunday – Communion elements will be provided to those worshipping in person. In preparation for receiving communion at home, we encourage you to gather your favorite bread and a small cup of juice in advance of the 10:30 a.m. livestream start time. In the event that you are unable to collect your own elements, just participate as you are able.
