This Week in Worship

What Faithful Looks Like

Luke 16: 1-13 Have you ever learned a lot from a bad example?  You know, what not to do?  Sometimes we do what we ought not to do.  It's great when we can learn from the best examples, but sometimes, we need "good news" for the rest of us.  Come hear some bad examples that somehow open a new day for us anyway by God's grace.
