This past Sunday night we enjoyed an extended time of worship and ministry at our Open Heavens, now on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 7 PM.
This weekend I will be doing a “State of the Church” message regarding our vision and mission, giving you a scorecard of how we have been doing meeting our goals for this year. I always love sharing the vision we have to reach our city with God’s love!
