Sex, Sexuality and Scripture

There are many misconceptions regarding what the Bible does and does not say regarding sex and sexuality. The Bible upholds the power and value of love, including intimate love, and puts far fewer limits on intimate love than the Church sometimes touts. Join us for Grace worship, “Sex, Sexuality and Scripture”, as we explore the greatest of all gifts – love.
