Pick up a “Six Pack”

The Connections Team has put together six packs of invitation cards.  The purpose of the cards are to help us invite others to worship.  It is often easier to invite others if we have something to share.  So pick up a six pack today and share a card with a neighbor, co-worker, family member, friend or anyone else you would like. 

It's Not What You Think Sermon Series

“Christians have the greatest story ever told but we aren’t telling it.” Jefferson Bethke

Jesus was most upset at people for seeing but not seeing. For missing it. What if Jesus came not to help people escape the world but rather to restore it? This Summer we will look at the same story in a new light, presenting God’s truths from the Old and the New Testaments as the challenging and compelling story that is the life-changing message of Jesus that turned the world upside-down, a world that God is putting back together.  Join us as we discuss Why Christianity Is About So Much More Than Going to Heaven When You Die.
