Matthew 6:1-6
Don't Be a Hypocrite

Hypocrisy is one of the most universally frowned upon character traits. At the same time, to one degree or another, we are all guilty of hypocrisy. In this passage, we will see Jesus confront the issue of hypocrisy in the context of practicing righteousness. Jesus warns His followers not to fall into the trap of making their righteousness about receiving the praise of other people. Instead, He calls us to a private piety where only the Father sees and rewards us. Our series through the Sermon on the Mount continues this Sunday in this message from Pastor in Training Nick Loschiavo.


Missions Update

Seventeen of our members have courageously agreed to leave their homes and families for one to two weeks to represent us.

Five will travel to East Asia in July and twelve to Nicaragua in August. As a body, we can support their work through prayer and financial support.

They are seeking to raise $27,600 to cover their expenses. Click HERE to view the letter outlining the need and how you can give.

Prayerfully consider how you can support them. Please return your support by June 1st.

Prayer and Worship Night
Friday May 19 7-9pm


This year, we have placed a special focus on prayer. At various times throughout the ministry year, we have set aside time for extended prayer in our life groups. Please join us as we gather as a whole church for a night of prayer and worship on Friday May 19th. In Ephesians 6:10, Paul writes, "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power." Our theme will be “Strengthening One Another.”
