Against the Grain – Week 1

Jesus Redefines the Win: We’re kicking off a new series this Sunday, Against the Grain! When Jesus gave a sermon that was not on a mount (it was actually a flat riverbed!)

While the world wants you to come in first place at everything you do, God wants only to see you finish well, no matter your life circumstances. How can the poor be blessed? How can those who weep and mourn be blessed?
