CURRENT SERMON SERIES
STUDY OF “I CORINTHIANS”
This sermon series goes along with our fall Journey Groups that are meeting to share this study.
Through these sermons & the small groups, we are looking at a 1st century letter to one of the first churches (in Corinth). What did the letter tell them (and us!) about being a Christian church?
