The Shallow End
Do you remember that first time you decided to leave the shallow end of the swimming pool and jump into all that was possible in the deep end? The Shallow END is a six-week sermon and small group series that focuses on God's self-revelation in Exodus 34. Through this self-revelation, we are invited to experience the deep things of God, a God who is bigger and more beautiful than we ever imagined.
We encourage you to utilize these resources for our series. The content is designed to help you grow in community and individually, and also to share with others who might benefit from them.
Our daily word of encouragement videos also reinforce what is taught on Sunday mornings. You can access our videos on social media, the home page of our website, in our enewsletter, and on our YouTube channel.
SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION GUIDES
Discussion Guides for small groups are updated by the end of day on Friday each week and coincide with the sermon for that week.
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, or exercise, and it's also a way to fill your home with truth and peace and joy.
