Upcoming Sermons 

“Finding the Way” Lenten Series:   Our Lenten Series is about finding your personal way to authentic faith.  Dr. Gardner is recommending three books that address the topic for three different audiences - men’s spirituality, women’s spirituality, and spirituality for mature Christians.  He’ll be looking at six key passages from How God Makes Men by Patrick Morley, For the Love by Jen Hatmaker, and Falling Upward by Richard Rohr.  We’ll also challenge people to keep a “Finding the Way” Journal for the season of Lent.
