"If grace ceases to surprise,
it ceases to be known for what it is."
– Derek Kidner

Adult Sunday School Series
Find peace and rest in God's unbending and unending gift of grace.
Have you ever felt that you did something that could not be forgiven--that God's grace could not extend to your situation? It's easy to beat yourself up. But as the apostle Paul reveals in his letter to the Romans, God never does. His grace is always sufficient to meet your needs and cover your mistakes, missteps, and misdeeds.
Or, maybe you're stuck trying to earn God's grace...? When the world demands: achieve, succeed, earn, God says: learn on me, trust me, believe me. You don't have to accomplish or prove anything; God offers unconditional acceptance to a believing heart.
In this 40-Day study based on his bestselling book, In the Grip of Grace, Max Lucado illuminates one of the richest theological works ever penned, the book of Romans. The core idea of Romans is that we are saved by grace, through faith.
Max will guide us through this letter from Paul to the Romans, revealing what the apostle's words meant to his original readers and how they apply to us today. We will be encouraged as we listen to Max's teachings and challenged to study the book of Romans like never before!
Pastor Dave Manges will be our facilitator for adult Sunday School program.

Hope Is Here series
The greatest need we have in our lives, after the year we’ve experienced, is a sense that there is hope in the world. Some of us have experienced great loss this year, for some it’s been disruption, and for many it’s just been a long test of mental, emotional, and physical will. This
year has caused some of us to doubt our faith and lose grip on the things we used to hold so tightly. At the end of the day, can we all just agree that we are in need of real hope? Hope is Here is a 4-week sermon series built as a response to the challenges and difficulties of the past year.
