Sunday, July 14


“Unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” Huh? What does that mean? Maybe we have heard that phrase born again a thousand times, or maybe this is the first time. It is the answer to the unspoken question that exists in the depth of all of our hearts. It is there, whether you have spoken it or not. How does one gain a presence in the Kingdom of God? And the answer is your greatest need in this life… you need His Life.

Backpack Outreach
We want to bless 500 kids with brand-new backpacks for the next school year, filled to the brim with all the supplies they’ll need. But we can’t do it without your help! Help us gather supplies or sign up to serve on distribution days. Learn more here!

Save the date for our annual summer picnic and cruise-in on Sunday, Aug. 11, from 12-3pm. There will be music, food trucks, cool cars on display, inflatables, and more. You don’t want to miss this one, so mark your calendars now!

Did you know that you can interact with the sermon notes directly from your smart phone or tablet?
See all the verses referenced in the sermon outline, make notes under each point or any of the verses, and save it all to review later. Are you going to miss a Sunday? You can still save the Live Event on Sunday morning (no matter where you are) and access it later when you are ready to view or listen to the sermon online. All you need is the You Version Bible app, and it is free!
