Pastor Jonathan Eckberg concludes our series on Leviticus 11-16 in a message titled, “Cleaning Day.” It’s easy to notice when our kitchens, living rooms, or workspaces are a mess – the dishes piled up, toys thrown across the room, papers stacked upon papers.

Pastor Ron Eckberg teaches week three of our study through Leviticus. It is probably safe to say that Leviticus is one of the least read books of the Bible.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg continues our study through Leviticus with this week’s message, “Perfect Provision.” In our most honest moments, it is easy to recognize how far we are from perfect.
