Heaven Meets Earth

There is no greater event in all human history than the resurrection of Jesus. In the resurrection, we see God’s incredible power on full display. The Bible says that the same power that rose Jesus from the grave is readily available to us today. So why do so many of us live such powerless lives? As Easter approaches, join us we look at Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. We’re going to look at a few of the most powerful moments in the life of Jesus and learn what is possible for our lives when we put our trust in him.

James

We are beginning 2017 with an extended series on the BOOK of JAMES. People love James because it is simple and practical. It gives us clear instructions on how we ought to live. That is true, but James is more than just a book of morals. Underneath all of these commands for moral living is an image of a good God who loves us and gives good gifts; a good God who wants us to love and serve him in return. James is saying that when we keep our eyes on the good God we will live better lives filled with purity and purpose.

Let’s make 2017 the best year yet!
