If there is one realm that confirms the widening gap between God's design for our lives and the way our culture urges us to live, it is human relationships. And, nowhere is this more true than in our romantic relationships. The things we do in our attempts to give and receive love -- well, they can be downright crazy!
Join us for our new teaching series as we put love under the microscope with the help of the Scriptures. Whether you're crazy about the idea of love, or love is making you crazy, CRAZY LOVE will help you discover the truth about what drives our most important relationships.
