The Best Sermon Ever
When Jesus stood before the crowds of people and delivered the Sermon on the Mount, He spoke about a different way to live. The crowds were amazed at this powerful sermon, but they also had to wrestle with some of the difficult personal and social implications of what Jesus was teaching. And although so much has changed over the last 2,000 years, we too have so much to learn by wrestling with the truths in this sermon. Join us for this 13-week series as we study what Jesus said about topics affecting us today. Also, be sure to pick up a FREE guide or download a PDF below.
Serve in FirstKids
We are intentional in helping kids — birth thru 5th grade — better understand their faith through our age-appropriate Bible stories, kids worship, prayer, and activities. We'd love for you to serve alongside us as we equip the next generation of Christian leaders. To volunteer, contact Heather at email@example.com or text (217) 747-8392.
