Earn Your WINGS

What’s essential for a long journey or a long flight? Your first thoughts might be good music, plenty of snacks, clothing, money, or gas. While all of these things and more are necessary, nothing is as essential as a road map, a GPS, or a flight plan to get you to where you’re going. The same is true for our faith journey. Why WINGS? Scripture calls us to be and to make disciples of Jesus Christ. So, how do we live,…

Worship Series: Life Signs

He is risen! He is risen indeed! We worship a risen savior and the good news of our faith is that Easter is not limited to one Sunday a year. Some say that every Sunday is a mini-Easter because we gather to celebrate our resurrection faith.

Loved ones, friends and family members, heroes of the faith, forefathers…
