Join us for the first week of your summer as we trace God’s redemption of humanity throughout the entire Bible.
Things are not the way they were intended. God created the world to be a place of peace and beauty, but we have distorted and wrecked it through our sin. Even as we rebel every day, God is making All Things New! We look forward to the new heavens and the new earth that will be revealed when Jesus returns. God will be there with us, and we will live in perfect harmony with him and each other for all eternity!
