Fixing  Our Eyes on Jesus

Our Lenten sermon series will challenge us to move forward in our vision of Jesus.  We'll look at the core of Jesus' teaching that directs us to live in a new and distinct manner. Lent is a journey that reorients our lives to view others through the radical lens of grace and mercy! Learn more in our blog post

Giving Drive for CES

During this time the church observes a season of generosity, simplicity, and repentance. Our local food shelf is in need of many items. Please bring your donations to church before Easter Sunday. 

Contemplation Radio

We have collected songs of lament and contemplation to help you center on Good Friday in preparation to celebrate His resurrection.
