Message From John & Dannielle Basso

Welcome to

college &
young adult

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Current Studies

March Series – Tough Parables

Jesus was creative as he taught. He used parables, or stories, to help people understand His truths. Sometimes these stories were thought-provoking. Other times they challenged the popular religious teachings of Jesus’ day. And sometimes they challenged the audience to re-evaluate priorities, values, and misconceptions.

Rather than avoiding challenging parables, we will dig deep into The Lost Sheep and Coin (Luke 15:1-10), The Fishing Net (Matthew 13:47-51), The Pharisee and Tax Collector (Luke 18:9-14) and The Shrewd Manager (Luke 16:1-14).


In this four-lesson series we will explore, wrestle, and discover how the life-changing truths within the parables that Jesus taught apply to every day life.
