Current Sermon Series
This series is entitled "Together" as we focus on the community that God is forming out of slaves that have only known hard labor for 400 years. God gives them the ten commandments to show how they are going to get along. God wants to give them rest and re-establish His covenant with them as He comes to Tabernacle among them. "Together" points to the reality that God wants to have fellowship with His people. He wants His people to experience His presence among them, as seen in the cloud by day and the fire by night. The Ark in the Holy of Holies gives us a vivid image that God has come to inhabit his creation as He intends to re-create and renew His people.
We find ourselves in this story, as through Christ and the Holy Spirit God creates community called the "Body of Christ", as "together" we participate in expanding the Kingdom of Christ.

We have all asked deep penetrating questions. Why does the earth exist? What is the purpose of human life? Why are we here? Well, we are glad you asked! We believe the answer to these questions lie embedded in the Bible. The Bible answers life's most fundamental questions in a remarkable unified story!
Over the next year and a half, we are going to experience "Adventures with the Bible" as we walk together as a church family through the story of God and us. Did you know... The "Tree of Life" in Revelations 22 and the "Tree of Life" in Genesis, serve as bookends to frame this story from beginning to end. The end helps to understand the beginning. The creation of a new earth and a new heaven brings to fulfillment a process that began with the creation of the earth, as described in the opening chapters of Genesis.
Along the way we will also discover the importance of the Temple in the life of Israel, how Jesus became the Temple and we are, as the body of Christ, becoming the Temple of the Holy Spirit.
Every Sunday, kWorship, and Adult worship will be on the same topic. All the "life-groups" will also be studying the same topic that is covered weekly in the pulpit. This is a very exciting adventure for all of us! Are you in?
