June 30 – September 1 | Summer Songs: A Journey Through the Psalms
Music not only has the capacity to move us to great depth of emotions, but it is often easier to remember lyrics from songs more than we do the spoken word. Songs then, have the capacity to teach us. The Psalms of the Bible are songs, inspired by God, to teach us, to encourage us and to lead us to worship God in spirit and truth. Join us this summer on Sundays at 11 a.m. for a journey through the Psalms.

September 8 – October 27 | Living for Something Larger: Lessons from Nehemiah
The wall of Jerusalem lay in ruins as God’s people suffered defeat at the hands of their enemies. They had been defeated, disgraced and displaced as many were in exile. Then Nehemiah heard about the plight of the city and God’s people and stepped up to the challenge. He led the people to rebuild, renew and be revived. Join us on Sundays at 11 a.m. for this exciting series as we discover what it takes to restore a sense of vitality to our spiritual lives and to live the exciting adventure of faith.
