This new series "Renewed" helps people experience new, fresh things God wants to do in our lives, because we so often feel stuck in a rut and just go through the motions. Instead of just surviving life, God wants us to thrive and experience the abundant life he came to give us. Join us as Pastor Charles walks us through the story of Zacchaeus. When Jesus meets him, he is a thieving traitor who is only thinking about himself. When he encounters the love of Jesus in his home, Zacchaeus’ spirit is renewed and it is evidenced by his extreme transformation.
It's hard to believe...in a couple week marks the beginning of a new school year that will impact so many of us. As a church, we would like to take this time and space to pray for and bless our students, our teachers and the multitude of others who give their time and talents for the good of our schools, our students and our community. We will offer one back to school blessing on Sunday, July 16th during the worship service. All students and educators are encouraged to receive a special blessing for the start of a new school year.
