Sunday Worship Online & Announcements
Sundays at 9:30am

It's easy to stumble when we forget that this world isn't our permanent home. We can find ourselves adopting the values and habits of those solely focused on the here and now. But today, we're going to dive into what God teaches us about living for the Kingdom of God. Join us as we explore the changes needed to be faithful citizens of this eternal kingdom.
