Simplify

by davidprill1

Our lives are often very complex. This sermon series is based off a book by Bill Hybels by the same title. It will consider practical areas of our life (calendar, finances, relationship, anxiety, and forgiveness) and how these areas might be simplified when brought under the guidance and grace of Jesus. There will be lots […]

More and More

by davidprill1

More and more. If we are really honest it’s what we really desire. Something deep within us craves more and more. More money. More time. More pizza. More quiet. More people in our church.

Aren’t those great!? They make me laugh.  So silly.  And yet – so true. Here’s […]
