To a person supported and comforted by the Church, the cross symbolizes grace and love. To someone hurt by the Church, it can represent heartache and hypocrisy. What does the cross mean for you? How are we to understand the central message of the cross today?

LENTEN BOOK STUDY - Wednesdays at Noon on March 10, 17, 31, & April 7

Join me for Zoom discussions as we journey through the book Savior - What the Bible Says about the Cross by Magrey DeVega. If you plan on participating, I encourage you to purchase the book from wherever books are sold. More details to follow.

I look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday online at 9:30am.
