11 Week Bible Study

James is one of the most practical books of the Bible. 

Its teachings speak loudly to those who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and their faith.

This study offers 'pearls for wise living' by applying the wisdom of James to our current day.  For anyone who has struggles to live a truly Christian life,

James offers a wealth of practical solutions for handling

and even sanctifying everyday circumstances.

Building Project

The next phase of the Sacred Space - Social Place Project has started - actual construction.


The estimate time for completion is 18-24 months. If you have ever been involved in any type of a construction project, the best laid plans seem to not go as planned, so let's figure on 24 months.

It is our intent to keep you updated on the progress through the bulletin and the website.
