Hi Friends,

This Sunday we are bringing our series, Questioning Christianity, to a close.  We are going to be looking at, not objections to faith, but evidence for faith.  My hope is that this will not only furtehr ground you in the reasonableness of what we beleive, but also equip you to engage others in a thoughtful way.

Just a reminder, but we meet for prayer every Sunday morning at 9am.

Whether online or in person, I look forward to worshipping with you!

Pastor Jeff

10:00 – Call to Worship

God loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD. By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host. He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap; he puts the deeps in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him! (Psa 33:5-8 ESV)

Responding to God’s word in Song and Communion

  1. Behold Him


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 (Col 1:15-17 ESV)
