Join us for our current sermon series and Bible study. We are in the midst of a seven-week focus on vitality in life and church. We will see how we serve the God of life, all life, and that God wants each and every one of us to know the new life that we find in Jesus. We will see how God wants us to thrive as individuals and as a church. In addition to the sermon series, there will also be a seven-week Bible study group so that we can dialog about these themes on life. So join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am and Thursday evenings 7:00 pm.
Here are the 7 topics:
Signs of Vitality
Vitality Begins with God
Vitality is in the Mission of Jesus
Vitality is a Movement of the Holy Spirit
Vitality Encounters Resistance
Vitality is a Journey
Vitality is a Communal Effort
