god is calling.jpg

This worship series is about God’s calling to us, to summon us to service, to offer us hope, to enliven our faith and life. Jesus said that God is a God of the living, and not of the dead (Matthew 22:32). The Psalm says that ours is a living God (Psalm 42:2). We believe that the living God is at work among the living today – calling us, claiming us, and commissioning us to be life-givers.
