Readings and sermon were delivered by Pastor Aaron Mueller.

Fighting Temptation with the New Birth – First Sunday in Lent

James encourages us to combat the deadly effects of sin by focusing on God's goodness, especially his Fatherly love for us in Jesus.

Chuck and Aaron discuss the role intelligence plays in questions about God, and what Christianity has to offer people of all psychological makeups that attracts so many.
