Service Summary:

We continue our new spring series on the Book of Ephesians with a look at at its second chapter. When we consider the temple in Jerusalem, each of the individual courts – the Courts of the Gentiles, the Israelite women, the Israelite men, the priests and the Holy of Holies – are all separated by barriers, both physical and functional. But, through Jesus, God is preparing a new temple, and He is changing the dynamics. Today, Pastor Ashley will be talking about how this is happening, and what result God is preparing for.
