    Romans: The Hope of the Gospel
    Sunday mornings, 9:45 AM
    9/23 | The Flesh and the Spirit

    Romans: The Hope of the Gospel
    Join us on Sundays at 9:45 AM
    for this powerful message series by Pastor John Munro.

                

    NEW! Browse or download the study guide, Romans: The Hope of the Gospel (Part Two / Chapters 5–8)
    Pick up your free hard copy in the Galleria!

    Replay or catch up on messages online



    Many people have a distorted view of "the Gospel.” What is the Gospel? How is it relevant? What difference (if any) does it make in our lives?

    The overwhelming theme of the book of Romans is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To study Romans is to learn the central doctrines of authentic Christianity and how to apply it to our lives in a practical way. Do you know the power of the Gospel?

    "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16).

    The Life of David
    A new series from Pastor Munro
    9/23 at 6:00 PM | David: The Giant-Killer
     

    The Life of David
    A new series from Pastor Munro
    Sundays, 6:00 PM beginning September 9


    David is one of the outstanding characters of the Bible. The young man who was a shepherd became Israel’s greatest king, the only person described in Scripture as “a man after God’s own heart” (1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22).

    For many of us as children, David and Goliath was our favorite Bible story, but did you realize that there is more detail about David than any other person in the Old Testament? And of all Old Testament figures, he is mentioned most frequently in the New Testament.

    Our Lord Jesus Christ is identified as “the son of David” (Matthew 1:1) and states “I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star” (Revelation 22:16).

    Clearly, David is someone we need to know! Scripture paints a realistic portrait of a great man with many successes, but also flaws and failures. How encouraging for all of us as followers of Christ!
     

    Join us on Sunday nights beginning September 9 as Pastor John Munro begins an exciting study on the life of David. Learn how you can be a person after God’s own heart!
