Bible Study: Oct. 24

Out of discussions about shenanigans (both human & pet), the appropriateness of quoting Proverbs to teenage boys, and bathtime with young children, the clergy reveal this week's messages: 1. we as humans are compelled to sin again & again—it's "baked" into human nature 2. Superficial Christianity is no substitute for the real thing and won't save us.

Bible Study: Oct. 3

Special guest Niki De Luca (our Finance Manager) joins the Rev. Alex this week as they discuss 2 Peter 2: 1-3. People may tell false truths or false futures that are enticing. They often sould legitimate, but these false claims are heresy. We don't need to do anything to be saved, we were saved by Jesus on the cross.


Sept. 26: Glory & Squalor

Sept. 12: The Multiplication of Grace

Rev. Alex begins our new series, 2nd Peter: A Lamp in the Darkness, this week.

August 8: A Widow's Son

In this reveal Christ comes to us in our most vulnerable state, and reveals how much more we can expect from Him on the cross.
