SUNDAYS: APRIL 3 & 10
Join us In Person or Online for this series on these Sundays at 9:30 or 11:00 am as we reflect on Jesus.
WATCH THE SERIES
A lot of people binge watch a whole series in a weekend. We're encouraging you to watch this series over the two weeks leading up to Easter. There are two seasons currently available, but do more than just binge watch for entertainment. We think this series can help bring the life of Jesus into a new perspective to you and it brings the Bible to life in a realistic way.
