Current Sermon: Flawed but Faithful
Pastor Robert Sefrit:
Simon Peter was an ordinary fisherman who transformed into a follower of Jesus. He was faithful, yet flawed. Peter was the first to profess Jesus as the Son of God, yet he later denied knowing him. Peter went on to give his life for the sake of his call. In this message series, we will take an in-depth dive into the life, faith, and character of Simon Peter and what his life can teach us about living as a flawed follower of Jesus. Our 212 Small Groups will also be going along with this message series.
Service Times: Sunday, 8:00, 9:00 & 11:00 a.m.

Hello Church Family, March 6th is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the season in the church called Lent. Lent is a 40-day period (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. It has traditionally been a time to “give something up,” to help us grow closer to Jesus, but Lent is so much more than this. It’s about repentance, preparation, reflection, discipline, self-denial, and reevaluation. So, here are some questions to ask yourself as we enter into this Lenten season: When I wake up on Easter morning, how will I be different? From what do I need to repent? Is there one particular sin in my life that repeatedly gets in the way of loving God with my whole heart or loving my neighbor as…
In the Winter Session of our 212 Small Groups, we are focusing on prayer and the book called Before Amen by Max Lucado. I think it’s really important that we as a church focus on prayer and grow in our prayer lives. Matter of fact, it’s been said that we can perhaps gauge the depth of our faith by the determination with which we commit ourselves to prayer. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, put it this way: prayer is the grand means God uses to transform us. Did you hear the T word in there? Transformation. Isn’t that what our vision for our future is all about? We picture it like this. At 100° water is hot. At 212°, it boils. Hot water is nice, but boiling water transforms. At…
Hello Church Family, Happy New Year! As we leave Christmas and enter this new year, I am reminded of the words of Howard Thurman: “When the song of the angels is stilled, When the star in the sky is gone, When the kings and princes are home, When the shepherds are back with their flock, The work of Christmas begins: To find the lost, To heal the broken, To feed the hungry, To release the prisoner, To rebuild the nations, To bring peace among people, to make music in the heart.” Howard Thurman wrote this as a reminder to us that while Christmas may be a day on the calendar, the true meaning of Christmas is to be found in…
Hello Church Family, We’re only a few short weeks from Christmas, and in the thick of what many people feel is a hectic season. The parties and pace, anxiety from family and finances, along with a rise in stress level and body weight can make this a strained time for many. But maybe you’re like me and you love this time of year anyway or at least you want to. No matter how you feel about this season, let me share with you two personal practices that I think can add a lot more joy and depth to our Advent and Christmas season. 1. Be Quiet Carve out a few moments for silence and reflection without having to be someplace,…
