Our worship theme for 2018 connects us with the promise and hope that God's grace and love are new every day. Focusing on what Jesus taught and lived, we will enter this new year asking how we can receive his love each day (the inward journey) and more actively share it in our everyday lives (the outward journey).
Inward Journey: Discovering who we are as a loved child of God.
Outward Journey: Doing what God has called us to do in the world. (Outreach Ministries)
Start your Inward Journey today by getting involved in our Classes, Seminars or Small Groups!
