What’s Going On

Sermon Series Oct. 19–Nov. 16

We’re going there — we’re going to talk about sexuality, and because we are people guided by the Word, we’re going to the Bible for answers. Discover a fresh biblical view of sexuality and learn how to have gracious, truth-filled conversations on this topic.

Parents, we are gearing the sermons towards 6th grade and above. Promiseland is available for children from age 0 to 5th grade.

What Are Your Questions? | Sexuality Q & A
Oct. 26 and Nov. 9, 5–7 pm
Ask questions and join us for one of two Q & A panel discussions with Bruce Miller and others on the topic of Sexuality. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Invite your friends to join us for the series!

We have Christ Fellowship invite cards available for you to hand out to friends, co-workers, family. Or you can share our social media posts on FacebookInstagram andTwitter.
