Responding to the Tragedy in Texas

By Jason McConahy,

Here are some links that speak into the shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas this past weekend. Let's be praying for the families of the victims, the survivors, the community, and for God to reveal His mercy and goodness to the world as He works His redemption in the midst of this unspeakable crisis.

By Aaron LeDuc,

Last week, we began our 2 week series praising God for the Reformation. There’s lots of great information out there about why this period of theological reform is vastly important for the church and our world’s culture. Below, are a few resources that can help you dig deeper.

Ligonier Ministries is doing a Reformation 500 Celebration Conference, all their video/audio is available to watch live or afterwards. Great content if you want to dig deeper into the importance and implications of the reformation.
