Sermon Series: Resurrection Life

We hear talk of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and how He was raised from the dead to defeat death and offer us new life.  But, as believers, do we know what such a life looks like?  Join us during the season of Easter as Pastor Karl presents a sermon series on Resurrection Life.   

Sunday morning worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00.
