Praising God unleashes power in our lives and into our world. Singing of God's greatness is a powerful weapon in our spiritual war against the forces of evil. Psalm 8:2 say...

This service is built around the theme of what it means to doubt God's promises to us, and the importance of hearing God's promises to us and trusting in them. The lectionary readings focus around Israel doubting God in the desert, after he had freed them from Egypt and God's anger at their faithlessness and mistrust of him....

It was originally a time for new believers to prepare themselves for their baptisms, which were done on Easter Sunday. But it soon grew to be a time for all believers to prepare themselves for Easter by examining their hearts and lives, and repenting of their sin. The word "lent" means...

Sunday Service (9:30am): The Transfiguration of Jesus

The transfiguration of Jesus is traditionally celebrated the Sunday before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten season. At the transfiguration, Jesus' true glory was revealed to several of his disciples, a foretaste of the glory that will be revealed when Jesus completes his work of redemption in the cross, resurrection and ascension.

Sunday Service (9:30am): Knowing God

In our service this week, God reminds us forcefully that his ways are not our ways and his wisdom is not the world's wisdom. By loving and following his law, we see who he is, and are transformed into who he has made us to be. It is only through knowing God rightly that our lives can be changed, and we can bring God's transformation to the world around us....
