Aug. 18 - Sept. 22

How do we know what was most important to the heart of Jesus?  We observe what He prayed, taught, and did.

Join us as Pastor David leads us through a 6-weeks series exploring aspects of Jesus' heart and how we can live into being Christ-like.

  • Jesus' Heart to Please His Father
  • Jesus' Heart to Invite the Lost to a New Way of Life
  • Jesus' Heart to Love Those Difficult to Love
  • Jesus' Heart for Healing People in Spite of the Rules
  • Jesus' Heart to Reveal What is Possible By Faith
  • Jesus' Heart for Unity Among His Followers
  • Jesus Heart to Show Preference for the Poor
