While Dr. Evans enjoys a well-deserved break this August, his son, Jonathan Evans, is preaching a five-part sermon series entitled “Losing is Winning,” from the book of Joshua.

Tune in every Sunday at 10 am, CT to join the broadcast for praise and worship and the Word of God.

Each week, we invite you to review the sermon from the past Sunday and use the questions below as a guide for your individual or group study time to go deeper into God’s word and connect in community. For God’s Word is not merely ink on paper; it is meant to challenge you at your very core and spur you on to take action for His Kingdom. Any time you interact with God’s Word is a great time to dig deep and see what God will do with your life!
