Questions like, “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” and “Where am I going?” are foundational to human existence.

Consider how God’s pursuing love demonstrated in Jesus powerfully shapes, and re-shapes, how we view ourselves.

A Song of Security

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: discipleship, Hope, security

A look to the hills for help ends in disappointment. For all their stunning beauty and majesty, for all their quiet strength and firmness, they are in the end just hills. Faith’s vision stretches beyond the hills to the God who made the hills, the Lord of heaven and earth. In the Lord God is security and hope for the long journey of discipleship.  Text: Psalm 121
