Pastor Ron Eckberg preaches through Ecclesiastes 7 as we continue our series, “Vs.” Let’s face it, when it comes to life we all want ample doses of the “better” and and as little of the “worse” as possible.

Pastor Ron Eckberg shares a special Father’s Day message. Like it or not, if you are a father you are being “measured”.

Pastor Ron Eckberg teaches the next message in our series, “Abide.” In John 10:10 Jesus tells us that he came that we might “have life and have it abundantly.” What a wonderful promise!
