Our worship services on Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings feature Spirit-filled music, heartfelt prayer and sermons that will help you apply the truth and power of God's Word to real life.
During the Lenten season, we’ll devote our weekends together to yet another Spirit-centric topic: spiritual gifts. In the “Gifted to Serve” message series, we’ll investigate one more layer of the Spirit’s power, this time when it comes to the specific gifts God has given us as individuals to fulfill His purposes. We’ll concentrate on four spiritual gifts as mentioned throughout the New Testament—speaking, people-intensive, service and support gifts—while considering the temptations and strongholds that sometimes interfere with our obedience to God’s call on our lives.

Join us on Wednesdays for a deep exploration of the seven deadly sins and their antidote, the fruit of the Spirit. Learn more>>
How does sin prevent us from being more authentic with the people around us? What difference does it make to our relationships with each other—and with God—when we dare to expose our struggles and seek true belonging in His family?Brokenness has been part of the human experience ever since the fall—but the same is true for the healing found in community. Examples abound in the Bible… Though Moses murdered an Egyptian slave driver, God convinced Moses to return to the Israelites and fulfill his purpose in leading them to freedom. Though Rahab lived a life of prostitution, her life was spared and she found acceptance by trusting the witness of Joshua’s spies and the God they professed. Though Zacchaeus lived a life devoted to money and greed, he was invited into the company of Jesus!To get to the heart of our brokenness and God’s gift of belonging, we are devoting this year’s Lenten season to a deep exploration of the seven deadly sins and their antidote, the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).Feb. 14 - Pride | PeaceFeb. 21 - Gluttony | Joy & Self-controlFeb. 28 - Greed | GoodnessMarch 7 - Lust | LoveMarch 14 - Envy | FaithfulnessMarch 21 - Sloth | PatienceMarch 29 - Wrath | Kindness & GentlenessToo often, we think we need to tackle sin all on our own—we need to clear this or that hurdle in order to be accepted. But there’s no denying that sin is a shared experience and that no part of the Spirit’s fruit can grow and multiply in isolation.That’s why, this Lent, you are invited to come experience the transforming power of Jesus in our learning and conversations with each other. As we expose our brokenness to God and one another in true community, Christ's death frees us to live life as He intended it. Free from greed to exhibit His goodness. Free from lust to be able to love. Free from pride to be people of peace. Our deadliest sins are no match for the fruit of His Spirit!
