Today’s Message:
Marriage Under Submission
1 Peter 3:1
Pastor John Lowder
Submission in general is a very difficult thing for people to do, but in marriage it can feel almost impossible. Sorting out what submission in marriage means and doesn’t mean is critical if we are going to live as god has designed us to live.

Today’s Message:
Free to Work 
1 Peter 2:18-25
Pastor John Lowder
Can you imagine what it would be like to be a slave? No rights… no pay… no freedom… And then to be told Christ expects you to respect and submit to even the harsh masters? Submission is one of the hardest commands to obey in the Bible. So how do we take our Christian freedom to work?

Today’s Message:
Free to Honor
1 Peter 2:13-17
Pastor John Lowder

As Americans we love our freedom, and rightly so. The more we understand our freedom in Christ, the more precious that freedom becomes as well. Freedom can become a cover-up for evil though, so how can we honor God with our freedom?
