Greetings E-news Friends,
The bible speaks of calling in a number of ways. Do you live with a sense of calling? Without it we drift aimlessly through life. As we continue our study in the Gospel of Mark this Sunday we will learn how God continues to call in a variety of ways. You may be surprised how God is calling you. Don’t miss it! God did not create you to float aimlessly through each day.
Renovation is moving forward. This Sunday we will be on the roughed in new stage. Thanks for your patience for the next few weeks with the acoustics. We are grateful for the volunteers that come each Saturday to get everything clean and ready for worship. We are striving for excellence that honors God and inspires people. If you would like to volunteer to help prepare for Sunday, sign up here.
