Teen Event - Chasing Love: Sex, Love and Relationships

6:00 - 7:00 pm in the Filling Station

Through Netflix, social media and even our educational system, teens today are being bombarded with faulty ideas about sex, love and relationships. Join Sean as he helps clear away false ideas about sex and explains the reasons behind God's design for human flourishing.

General Audience Event - True for You, but Not True for Me

7:00 pm in the auditorium

6:30 pm praise and worship in the auditorium

We live in a "post-truth" culture that cares more about feelings than facts. Is truth really about what we think or how we feel? Join us on Thursday, September 14, for the School of Christian Thought Presentation of world renowned author and speaker Sean McDowell who will help us unpack the "truth" about truth!

No registration is required to attend this event.
