The NL is a four-year cycle of Scripture readings that move from the Old to the New Testament to encounter the story of God’s salvation present through Scripture and in the life of 1st and 21st century believers.

It is the Easter season! It is called, Eastertide.
When we celebrate bunnies and the few bulbs that are sprouting up in our yard. No. That is not it. Let’s get more spiritual. Easter is the time we honor that guy, a long time ago, who was dead but then was resuscitated.  No. That is not it either.

If you want to know the deeper issues of which Easter speaks, longing to be re-created yourself, longing for re-creation of this world and our part in it, then join us for a three-week series during Eastertide entitled, “Resurrect Me.”

Sermon Series: Christmas Is Not Your Birthday

Series Summary: What a way to celebrate Jesus! Gifts for you and me. Throughout this sermon series, we hope to move beyond our own wish lists to consider the wish list of Jesus.

So, speak loudly this Christmas by putting away your lists and instead beginning to fill out Jesus’ wish list.

Series Summary: Names and naming play a critical role in the beginning of Scripture.
