Begins April 8th


Based on the movie “I Can Only Imagine” (in theatres now).  The local church has been charged with the mission of sharing the hope of the gospel, but it can be challenging in a broken world.  As people of Christ, we have seen people falter at the unexpected.  How can you help restore the hope when someone feels rejected, guilty or broken.  Before he became the Leader of the Band “Mercy Me”, Bart Millard suffered a painful childhood.  Abused by his father, Bart built walls around his heart, he couldn’t see any hope.

In this series, we will delve into Bart’s story of pain, redemption, forgiveness and God being glorified.  I hope you will join us every Sunday as we see ourselves through God’s eyes, and find healing, hope and restoration.

March Lenten Series: 24 Hours that Changed the World

March Lenten Series


24 Hours that Changed the World: No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. In this Lenten journey, Rev. Maureen and Rev. Alicea, will guide us through the last twenty-four hours of Jesus’ life from understanding the significance of Jesus’ suffering and death in a way you have never done before. Whether you’re a long time Christian or simply curious about the story of Christ’s crucifixion, you are invited to join us in retracing the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life.

Since we will not be purchasing books this time, feel free to buy and download the book onto your device, or purchase one through Amazon.com or your local book store.
