Journey with Us Through Lent to Easter

In the very middle of the Bible, we open it up to the book of Psalms, which Bible scholars state, most reveals the heart of God.

Songs of praise, songs of grief, songs of repentance, the Psalms contains every human emotion and how God meets us wherever we are at.

Throughout this season of Lent, we will explore the following renown Psalms to draw nearer to the heart of our God.

In addition to these services, our Lenten Bible Study will take place every Thursday between February 15th and March 21st at 7 p.m. on zoom. To join on zoom, go to and type in this info: Meeting ID: 856 0216 1210. Passcode: 088200

Happy New Year!

Join us for our brand new sermon series: “The Spiritual Wisdom of Our Favorite Children’s Books”

Before I had children, I never read children’s books in my adulthood. After I had children, I was inundated by them and occasionally, I came across one that stopped me in my tracks and brought tears to my eyes. The beauty and art of children’s books is that they seem simple on the face of it but are packed with layers of meaning and wisdom. So, let’s begin the new year by enlivening our child-like nature and enter into a world full of enchantment and wonder!
