Have you ever felt Trapped? Throughout human history, people have been trapped. Trapped by fear. Trapped by bitterness. Trapped by expectations or doubt. Despite our best efforts to escape on our own, we continue to fall into the same pit. There was one who came to rescue us from our despair. There is one who has already freed us from the traps that threaten to hold us. Because of his death 2,000 years ago, we can celebrate today. Because of Jesus, we are no longer TRAPPED! Join us on Sunday as we hear the second sermon in this series, “Trapped by Doubt”.
Make sure you don’t miss our ARISE Celebration service May 4! We exceeded our $1.9 million goal by giving $1,913,506 and have been blessed beyond measure in countless other ways. Praise God! Come and listen to members of our church body share stories of what God has done the past two years as we celebrate the Lord’s provision.
