Inspiring!    Beth & I just returned from an amazing trip to Israel. I can now more than imagine a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, stepping into the Jordan River near where Jesus was baptized, and praying in Jerusalem at the temple's western "wailing wall." I am excited to preach  Sunday , continuing our series CONFIDENT.  We'll find insights from Gideon's story (Judges 6:12-17) in a message "When I Feel Small." And then let's have lunch together right after church. We'll have great food (help us with providing that) and as elders we have some good news to announce.

Don't miss  Sunday !

Thankful. Hopeful. Confident. - Steve Wingfield, pastor
