A Month of Sundays for February…

The first Sunday of February will be the last sermon in the ‘Start with Why?’ series. The following Sunday, Pastor Mike will begin a series of sermons called: ‘Unafraid– Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times’. This Series will focus on where our fears come from and how our faith provides tools to face fear and uncertainty. In addition, at each Sunday in the series, Pastor Mike will be inviting guests who will help
resource you with information and skills to face a particular area of fears. Watch the Sunday bulletin, the church’s Facebook page and Website for more information.
