This Week in Sunday School

Christian Comrades:
"Study on the book of Acts"
Forward to Friend
As Christians, we use a number of words that are packed with meaning and importance: God, Hope, Doubt, Justice, Freedom, Peace, and more.  We are continuing with our summer sermon series called, "Words to Live By," in which we will unpack, explore, and explain what we mean when we use these powerful words, and how they shape our daily life. Join us for worship on Sundays at 10:15 AM to learn more.

Audio recordings of recent sermons are available to stream or download here.
