Announcements

  • Sunday Worship
  • PASTOR DALE'S MESSAGE SUNDAY IS ON EMPTINESS

    We look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday as Pastor Dale continues his series, "Gifts of the Dark Wood," focusing on EMPTINESS. The Scripture lesson is Mark 15:22-38. In our journey this Lent toward the Cross, we know even Jesus felt empty despair ... and it was at this moment that God's possibility of life beyond that pain was revealed.

    Blessings!
