Chapel’s Past Message Series

During this year’s Annual Focus, The Bible: God’s story of creation, redemption, and new creation with Jesus Christ at the center, we will cover a lot of content as we journey from Genesis through Revelation together. However, as we listen to, learn from, and live by God’s Word, the reality is that we simply can’t cover every chapter and verse on Sunday mornings alone (at least, not in just one year). Thankfully, over the past seven years, we’ve covered a lot of scriptural territory through our different Annual Focuses and Summer Bible Studies. If you’d like to go more in-depth on any of the specific genre’s within this year’s Annual Focus Framework, we’ve provided links to those sermon series below to help you on your quest to go deeper.
