Hi Friends,

How do you answer hard questions about the Christian faith?  Whether questions come from a thoughtful non-believer, or our own musings, we can all be skeptical at times.  How do you answer skepticism?   Come out this Sunday to hear how Jesus engages with some of his skeptics.  Not only are we going to hear what he says, but we have much to learn from how he said it.
See you on the best day of the week!

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.  (Psa 19:1-4 ESV)

Sharing the Lord’s Supper

Responding to God’s word in Song

  1. Behold the Lamb

  2. Jesus, Only Jesus


He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities– all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent (Col 1:15-18 ESV)
