Winter Warmer Series: Rare Fruit (Starts June 24)

As winter sets in, we'll be starting a new series on Sunday June 24 exploring four very rare fruit: kindness, peace, patience, and self-control. Over four weeks (with hot food each Sunday), we'll be opening up the Bible to explore what it looks like to be fruitful in godly ways as we seek follow Jesus. But we don't just want to explore - we want to put these fruit into practice! In fact, throughout the series, we're aiming to collectively demonstrate at least 1000 acts of kindness in our city.

To help us think about these topics more, we launched the year with a teaching series and a devotional (for the month of January) (the sermons and devotional are available on our website).
