It is crystal clear that we live in a sex-crazed culture. There seems to be a growing sense of confusion in all this chaos and a lot of questions that need answers. Where do we look to find the "right" answers? In the beginning, God created male and female to reflect His image to this world. He brought them together and said, "the two shall become one". But how did we get so far off track from His "very good" design? How do we find our way back? One thing the world seems pretty certain about: Christianity is a killjoy, anti-sex religion. Is this really true or does God hold the key to understanding our sexuality. Join us for this series as we look under the covers at God's great design for male and female and the amazing gift of sex.

There are significant spiritual ties between the celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection and baptism. In April, we will clear up some of the misconceptions about this watery ritual and celebrate Easter by having baptisms. If you’re interested in learning more about baptism or wish to be baptized on Easter Sunday, please contact your small group leader or Pastor Rob Busse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
