Worship Services on Sunday, April 21

"Is Faith Worth It for the Environment?"

8:30AM Traditional Chapel Service

10AM Contemporary Service in the Sanctuary & online

Pastor Brendan will continue his preaching series, "Is Faith Worth It?" Religion is on it’s way out in America. For many, faith feels outdated and worn out. For others, faith has even been harmful. What if the problem is how we practice our faith and not faith itself? During the month of April, we will consider whether faith has a place in our lives today. In a time of declining belief, discover what an authentic, meaningful, and welcoming faith might look like. Who knows, maybe it will be worth it.

Sunday School is available during the 10AM service. Click HERE for more information about Sunday School.
