Are you seeking a life filled with true richness and purpose? In this message we’ll explore the transformative power of generosity.

In the New Testament, we read how Christians were routinely persecuted. They were harassed, beaten, flogged, thrown in prison, or killed.

God’s Love is Generous: Putting Down the Shovel


Where do we invest our life? Do we invest in stuff that loses value over time? That is sold off for pennies on the dollar at the end of our life. What do we do with the talents God invests in us.

Grateful Hearts: GSL


If we don’t build a strong financial foundation, we will struggle our whole lives. But once we build that foundation we find that we are able to give, save and live on the rest. In this message we will focus on how to build that foundation.
