The Future of the Church

Not only are we studying the book of Ephesians but we are also seeking the Lord and saying we will do ’Whatever It Takes’ this year to worship Jesus and stay effective for reaching future generations. We are seeking the Lord for what kind of changes we need to make as we move into the future. We are considering what kind of church we need to be, in an increasingly secular culture, as we pass the baton on to our kids and grandkids.

Want A Deeper Dive?

Our current study in Ephesians is brief but, there is a sermon series that goes much deeper. Pastor Jon preached on Ephesians 1:4-6 four years ago, titled “Chosen By God The Father,” and it provides a deeper understanding of what we’re going through now. Make sure to check it out after watching the most recent sermon.
