​​​"We exist to

​connect people to

Jesus Christ!"

     On Sunday, April 8, we began a rather philosophical journey- Liar, Lunatic or Lord? Christian writer C.S. Lewis once posed the thought that, when you consider Jesus Christ, you have to decide that He is one of three things: a liar, a lunatic or the Lord. We will spend four weeks considering those three and where we might "come down" on this argument. The weeks of the series look like this: 
Sunday, April 8, 2018- C. S. Lewis Vs. Joy Behar (Mark 8:27-30)  
Ridicule has historically proven itself a rickety fence for great ideas.   
(Isaiah 9:6, John 1:9-14)  
Sunday, April 15, 2018- Liar (Mark 2: 3-12)  
You can run with a lie but you can't hide from the truth!  
(Isaiah 43:25-26, Acts 10:42-43)  
Sunday, April 22, 2018- Lunatic (John 10:27-30)  
What can you do against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?  
(Exodus 3:14, John 15:10-14) 
Sunday, April 29, 2018- Lord (John 3:16-21) 
Getting to know Jesus Christ is the best thing one can ever do in their lifetime. Don't miss the opportunity. 
(Isaiah 7:14 , Matthew 22:34-40) 

      In 590AD, Pope Gregory defined the 7 Deadly Sins as lust, wrath, gluttony, greed, sloth, envy and pride. At that time, he also included a counter-balancing set of values that we should adopt. They have become known as the 7 Heavenly Virtues. Starting Sunday, May 6, we will be immersing ourselves in these lists in an effort to identify and celebrate our own strengths as well as name areas of our lives that perhaps need more attention. The weeks of the series look like this: Sunday, May 6, 2018 Chastity (Luke 11:33-36)
