Sermon Series

Every day, God gives us exactly what we need and equips us for outstretched living. Over and over, he pours out his provision so we can live in his abundant fullness. When we are aware of how he provides for our everyday lives, we can live confidently knowing he will fill and sustain us in the future.

Saturdays
5 p.m.

Sundays
9 & 11 a.m.
Sanctuary

It is through our generosity that we celebrate and experience the generosity of the ultimate provider. Beginning Nov. 5, our newest sermon series, Overflow, will show us how to live in God’s abundant provision. Join us as we discover how we can receive it, live in it and how we can share it with others.
