Current Sermon Series

April 15 - 29

The FORWARD process to discern God’s future for our congregation was launched in March 2017 by Compass. Last month, after nearly a year of work and prayer, our Administrative Council approved the FORWARD team report. Beginning on April 15 this report will be shared in worship over the course of three Sundays. Pastor Elbert, Pastor Dan, and Pastor Zack will each preach about God’s future for us from a unique perspective. They will rotate preaching locations, so that over the course of three Sundays (April 15, 22, and 29) each of them will preach their FORWARD sermon in the sanctuary, at Shine in the Christian Life Center, and at our Berkley campus. Join us as we move FORWARD!

"What is Love?"

As we looked into what love is at our contemporary service on 2/11/18, we went out to the streets of downtown Birmingham and asked people, “What is love?” Here’ s what they had to say. And if you are interested in what Pastor Dan had to say about what love is, check out the sermon here.
