This Month's Worship Theme

Worship Theme-March 2023

Lenten Sermon Series begins February 26:

“Savior: What the Bible Says About the Cross”

During Lent we will turn our eyes to the cross. Why did Jesus die? What did his death mean? What did his death accomplish? What hope is there in the cross?

Pastor Vicki will be using the book by Magrey DeVega as a resource in this series. We will not be ordering copies for purchase, but you can buy them online from a variety of sources.
