September Sermon Series

Having a hard time obeying God’s command to love the world as God loves it? How about your city? Still having a tough time? In this sermon series, Love Your City: Change the World,  we will learn from the book of James on how to live outwardly with hearts and minds changed by the Spirit of God and choose actions that reflect the love of Christ in and for the world. In a world broken by rage, hear how Christ raises the church to provide a witness the way of the Cross that changes the world.
