Fall Preaching Series 2021: Exalt the Lord Our God

(News: Begins August 29, 2021)

As I prepared for the summer series we’re now completing (Summer 2021), I was struck by the fact that our culture exalts self rather than exalting God. This fall we’re going to jump into the book of Psalms at Psalm 90 and spend eleven weeks looking at the character of God as worshiped by the psalmists. We’ll see how God is the eternal one, our creator and our dwelling place. We’ll look at his justice, his righteousness, his holiness and much more, and learn to have a heart of worship that looks up to God and exalts him. If you want to get your eyes off yourself and onto someone worthy of your time and attention, join us each Sunday this fall.
