Worship with us sundays

Current Series

Join as we study Luke’s account of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. The Jesus we’ll meet in this gospel is FOR EVERYONE! Throughout this study, we see Jesus reaching out to all people, especially those pushed aside by society: women, criminals, commoners, gentiles, and “sinners” – they’re all here, and they’re all seen by Christ. Come and see for yourself who this Jesus is and how He is inviting you to follow Him.
