Our COVID Series: The Psalms

From Sunday, April 19 until Sunday, May 31, we explored the Psalms. Since they are "the prayerbook of the Bible," it is worth our while to explore them at any time, but especially during the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent challenges.


Every Sunday, we used the Psalms in worship and the assigned preacher preached from a Psalm. All the latest services and sermons can be found at the SERMON ARCHIVE or via links below.


In the week following each Sunday, we published Psalm "devotions" of various sorts. We are proud to say that these devotions are generated by both staff and many congregants. Please explore them below:
