Coming Up at Resurrection

This weekend in worship, Jesus calls us to a life of showing kindness and loving one another even beyond our own "neighborhoods." Pastor Scott Chrostek concludes our sermon series, The Magnetic Life and Love of Jesus with "The Irresistible Power of One-Anothering."

Invite your neighbors to join us in worship this weekend!

Serve like Jesus!

In worship last weekend, Pastor Scott Chrostek shared a message about serving in ways that take us out of our comfort zones. Are you ready to serve like Jesus? Is 2020 your year to serve on a Global Impact trip?

We have serve trips coming up in June to Honduras and Malawi, plus others this fall. Click here for trip dates and registration.
