Christ in the Passover: An Interactive Experience

Tuesday, March 28th, 7:00-8:15pm. Jews for Jesus will be illustrating the link between the Jewish feast of Passover and the Last Supper Jesus shared with His disciples. We'll taste the traditional foods, and weave the story of the exodus and freedom from slavery together with the messianic hope realized in Christ's life, death, and resurrection. RSVP at The Connection Corner or on the Church Center app!

Fix Your Eyes

The season of Lent breaks into our lives each year reminding us to not lose heart along the journey. There's an eternal glory that far outweighs these light and momentary troubles. "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal" (2 Cor. 4:18). When all you can see before you is the burden of the cross, it's time to fix your eyes. Join us for this Midweek series through Lent, Wednesdays @7pm.
