God calls us to open the door, make room at the table, and create spaces
to foster lasting relationships with Jesus Christ.

"The Importance of One"
Sermon Series: The Kingdom of God is Near
This Sunday, Pastor Paul will begin a new sermon series: The Kingdom of God is Near. " In this four-week series, listeners are reminded that there is a stark contrast between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdoms of man. Each week, the series will explore the steps to transforming your mind and your thoughts to reflect a “Kingdom of God” perspective. Instead of simply focusing on how we can make it to heaven, think about how God can bring heaven to dwell inside of you, for all the world to see."

Disciple Bible Study
Disciple Bible Study is transformative. The 34 week study is incredibly effective in shaping lives through interaction with the Word of God and each other. I hope to have enough people to sign up for this study so that we have two classes, on Sunday afternoons from 5:00-7:00 p.m., and on Wednesday evening. We will meet on August 18 at 5:00 p.m. to form classes. This will be an information session designed to give you the information you need to make this deep commitment.
