4/5/2017 Message: The Meaning of Easter (Part 1)

Easter has become a holiday that many people love to glance over.  We love the Easter dresses, egg hunts, and large family meals.  While we’re enjoying the decor of the season, it’s almost important to understand exactly what was going on during the week we know as “Holy Week”. 10th … Continue reading

3/1/2017 Message: Experience ‘Lent’

The season of ‘Lent’ has become a ‘Christian Cultural’ time for more than just your old-fashioned Liturgical believers.  Social media is full of people posting about what they are ‘giving up for Lent’, but it’s hard to tell if anyone actually knows why they’re doing it.
