NEW SERMON SERIES beginning September1st!
Pastor Jay will begin a new sermon series in Daniel on Sunday, September 1. The title of this series is called Hope in a Hostile World. The book of Daniel has been studied extensively for many years with many different ideas. On one hand, we see the narrative of the boy who was in exile; and on the other, the visions of things to come. But what meaning do these words provide? As we study the book of Daniel, our attention should be to the very heart of the Reign of God over creation. Daniel is a very practical book for Christians today because, in it, we can find how to live and find hope in a hostile world.
