Each week our pastors prepare to speak to a congregation—some have been attending church their whole life—even this church, some have only been in a church once or twice, some have a deep grasp of Scripture, others are just beginning their journey. Each has a different story. And yet the messages prepared each week are carefully prepared to make sure each person can walk away challenged to reflect Christ more vividly.

Only so much can be conveyed in a 40-minute message on Sunday. This new feature is designed to help each of us dive deeper into the subject matter that is being introduced to us in each series. Each week Pastor Phil will shed some insight with a Biblical deep dive to provide even greater context.
