We welcome all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals and condemn all acts of violence and discrimination against people because of their sexual orientation or gender identification...

This is a season of new beginnings. We have celebrated the start of a new calendar year as well as a new church year. We may have made resolutions about what we want out of life in 2019. Jesus brought light into our world when He was born. As we start 2019, how do we live in the light of Christ? Jesus shared that He came that we would have life and life more abundant. Throughout this series, we will look at a few ways that can help us experience “life in the light” of Christ.
