What does your name mean? This may be fun to ask, but it’s much more important when we are speaking of God. Elv leads the church in a discussion of God’s names, and a faith-building review of his character.

Some portions of this recording included group sharing, which were not recorded as loudly as Elv’s voice. It’s worth listening to, though!

When the topic of church services come up, people often get either bored or bothered. For some, corporate worship is riddled with controversy; for others, it’s bound by tradition, something we do on autopilot.

In this message, Dru looks at the importance of an open heart when it comes to worship. Are we ready to learn from His Word? Do we recognize its importance?
