Proverbs: The Art of Living Wisely

APRIL 23 - JUNE 12, 2022

We can now access more information than in any other time in history. Yet, there’s a significant difference between knowledge and wisdom. The Book of Proverbs wrestles through the everyday concernsof life such as planning, friendship, work, homelife, emotions, and so much more! Join us each weekend for our new message series, Proverbs: The Art of Living Wisely. We also encourage you to read through a chapter of Proverbs each week with Pastor Adam Hamerlinck.

Reading through Proverbs

During Proverbs: The Art of Living Wisely, we challenge you to read one chapter from Proverbs every day for a week. Yup, that's the same chapter over and over for seven days. Over time, you'll notice something new you didn't notice before. Also, Pastor Adam Hamerlinck will share a video with his reflections on Proverbs.
