because of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30

Our 20 year theme, “Because of Christ,” encapsulates both our past and our future. He is our source and beginning; He is our motivation and outcome—our “wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” 1 Cor. 1:30

You won’t want to miss this inspiring week of recalling the past and being encouraged in our hope for the future—“Because of Christ.”
