Since the beginning of time, stories and songs have always resonated deeply in the hearts and souls of humanity. Mankind has relied on them to learn, to reflect, to remember, and to share everything including historical events, life experiences, faith, hope, life, death, and everything you can imagine.

Stories and Songs have been at the core of major movements in history, the formation of culture, the recordings of tradition, and the teaching of life experience. It’s even how the message of Jesus was communicated to countless numbers of people for centuries.

We invite you on a journey this summer with a handful of artists, activists, and storytellers who are making a lasting impact on the world around them.

Join us for our new Summer series called Stories & Songs!

Lust. Pride. Envy. Gluttony. Anger. Greed. Slothfulness.

Sin. It’s a word that nobody likes to talk about, few want to admit, and fewer still are willing to confront. Yet temptations exist at every turn of our lives. Left unaddressed, these roadblocks impact our lives in ways many of us never realize, until it’s too late.

Join us on an introspective journey of freedom and hope as we learn to courageously confront the Seven Deadly Sins and embrace their counterparts, the Seven Godly Virtues.
