Current Sermon Series


Everyone loves a good story.  From the small child who wants to read stories before bed to the adult who looks forward to the newest installment of their favorite trilogy, stories have a way of capturing our hearts, minds, and imaginations in a way that nothing else can.

Maybe that is true because whether you recognize it or not, you have a story.  Your life, with all of its’ ups and downs, highs and lows, is an incredibly important and intricate story.  It’s a story that others need to hear and that isn’t quite done yet.  But more than that, your story is part of a much grander and greater story – The Story of God.  The moment God spoke creation into existence, he began telling a story – a story of love, loss, and ultimately abundant life. Although at times the Bible can seem overwhelming and a bit out dated, the truth is that the Bible is actually The Story of God – a story that is unlike all others and that helps make sense of and give meaning to our own story.


Join us over the next few weeks and months as we walk through the Biblical narrative and lose (and ultimately find) ourselves in The Story!  


Thomas paused the series last Sunday due to the bad weather – he will pick it back up with Joshua this Sunday!
