Starting on January 1, 2017, we will continue our study in the book of Hebrews. Each week we will study a passage of scripture from Hebrews. If you miss a Sunday, you can hear the weekly sermon online at your leisure throughout the week. Some of the small groups are studying along with the sermons using Hebrews for Everyone by N.T. Wright and the study guide that complements the book. Check out our small groups page to find one, if you are not already involved in this way.
