Summer Sermon Series:

Join us this summer as we explore the 10 commandments!

Each Sunday we will walk through the 10 commandments one at time, digging deeper into these laws of God, and put them in context with God’s work of redemption for ancient Israel and with Jesus’ own engagement and fulfillment of this same Law in God’s ongoing story of redemption for the whole of creation.
