Many people today hunger for spiritual encounter, but also want to be part of something that is bigger than themselves. The book of Genesis tells the harrowing story of God encountering one man – Abraham – and through his family changing the entire world. He was an unlikely candidate. In fact, he came from the wrong family, the wrong culture, and the wrong religion…which is why this is primarily a story about God’s sovereign grace – relentless, historical, costly, and unstoppable grace. Join us over the next few months on Sundays as we see that the same God who encountered Abraham is reaching out to us as well. Our services are at 9am and 10:45am. If you’re not able to come on Sundays, you can listen to sermons online.
