Pastor Jonathan Eckberg introduces a new 2-week miniseries called, “Limited/Limitless.” Limitations are a part of life. None of us have an endless supply of energy or resources at our disposal.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg shares our Easter message. Last Easter we were unable to meet together. The following 12 months brought more than their share of disappointment, frustration, and division.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg concludes our series, “Abide,” by looking at 1 John 3:1-10.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg continues our study of 1 John, “Spotlight.” We live in a frantic and fragmented world. Information and decisions often come at us faster than we can sort them out. So how do we tie the details and big picture elements together to find a unified approach to living out the light of Christ? John tells us how …

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg teaches the next message in our series, “Spotlight,” as we study together through the book of 1 John. Last week we talked about the fact that God is light (1 John 1:5).

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg preaches the next message in our series, “Hold the Line,” as we study together through the book of 1 Thessalonians.
