Pastor Jonathan Eckberg concludes our 2021 Advent series, “Awe and Wonder”. As the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15), Jesus is the perfect expression of God’s infinite love.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg teaches the next message in our series, “Next Level,” as we continue to study through the life of Abraham. Most know the story of Sodom and how God destroyed the city.

Pastor Ron Eckberg continues our study through the book of Galatians, “The Real Thing.” The appendix is an odd part of the human anatomy. While it may have once had a purpose, it is now useless to the human body. Similarly, over the past few weeks, we’ve seen how the law is left useless in light of God’s grace. In …

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg continues in our final study in Leviticus called, “The Pursuit.” Everybody loves a party. We take great joy in gathering together to celebrate life’s momentous occasions. But these are (usually) events we choose to celebrate. How do we respond when we are commanded to celebrate. In Leviticus 23, God commands His children to celebrate. This week we …
