Sermon Series

To reset something is, literally, to set it back to its original purpose and design. When an electronic device is functioning in a less-than-optimal way, it can be reset so whatever was stuck gets unstuck and all the connections can run smoothly again. Similarly, when life is functioning in a less-than-optimal way, it can be reset too. This happens first on the inside. Are you ready for a Reset?

Join us for a Q & A session each Sunday at 5:00 PM in Room 100. Enjoy chatting about this Sunday’s sermon in a safe and informal session with Pastor Tom.

Women of Faith: Applying Biblical Principles as We Face Everyday Challenges

Thursdays from Jan 9 – Mar 5, 2020,
10 – 11:30 AM, Room 307-308.

An 8-week facilitated discussion for women. Facilitated by Janet Bickel. Each week we’ll discuss a topic and relate it to our everyday lives. We’ll see how New Testament scripture leads us to respond with practical applications that encourage us to lead lives that follow Christ. Topics include:  Finding our Purpose; Who is the Holy Spirit; Prayer; Forgiveness; Scripture and Values; Gratitude; Getting Beyond Ourselves in the midst of busy lives. We’ll discuss these difficult topics, learn from each other, in hopes of encouraging our faith to be real and authentic. Questions?   Email Janet at janadu52@gmail.com.
