a sermon and small group series in the book of Revelation

Let's be honest: the book of Revelation can be intimidating, confusing, and even scary. Because of this, many Christians avoid it altogether. This 7-week series is designed to help modern readers make sense of John's vision in a way that unravels the mystery and makes the primary messages just as relevant today as they were in the first-century. It will also redefine "apocalypse," demystify the symbolism, confront our tendencies toward syncretism and compromise, challenge our faith, and focus our hope on Christ, the King and the renewal of all things. We will be reminded that EVEN WHEN IT LOOKS LIKE EVIL IS WINNING, CHRIST HAS ALREADY WON.


We encourage you to utilize these resources for our current sermon series in the book of Revelation. The content is designed to help you grow in community and individually, and also to share with others who might benefit from them.

Discussion Guides for small groups are updated by Sunday morning each week and coincide with the sermon for that day.


Listen to some of the worship songs that we sing on Sundays from our Spotify playlist. It's a great way to engage in worship while you drive, do chores, exercise, and more, and it's also a way to fill your home with truth and peace and joy. The playlist is updated every week.
