For the last half of the summer, we took a break from our series through the Gospel of Mark to dive into the great book of Psalms. It’s a book of both joy and sorrow, of praise and heartache. Ultimately, every psalm engages our minds and our hearts to find our trust in God alone.

You can listen to the five sermons from this mini-series, from five different preachers, over at our sermons page.

Want to dig deeper into the book of Psalms? We recommend the following resources:
