Fall Sermon Series

Fall Sermon Series

Every movement is shaped by moments, and those movements can shape the course of history. The early Church was shaped by God-sized moments that changed everything. These moments were game changers.

Sundays this Fall
9 a.m & 11 a.m.
Sanctuary

Join us this September for our sermon series, Game Changers, based on the book of Acts. We’ll see how encounters with God thousands of years ago continue to shape the body of Christ today.

Can't make it a week? Every service is live streamed on our webchurch and later posted on our website.
