Current series: Galilee Summer Book Series

Our new worship series recognizes that reading is a great summer activity. We mean beach reading. Or pool reading. Or mountain-top reading. Have you got a stack of summer books assembled yet? We’d like you to make room on your pile for three short books of the Bible: Galatians (June), Ephesians (July) and Philippians (August).

We’re going to read through them all with a series of free booklets called Galilee’s Summer Book Series. You can take these on the road with you, they contain the complete book with discussion guides. There’s even an electronic version: July’s guide to Ephesians.

Watch or listen to the sermons.
