Sunday, June 24
It's highly unlikely that you've confessed your sin to the Lord while trapped inside a large fish. . . but that's what the prophet Jonah had to do. This Sunday we will see confession as the way to freedom, regardless of how trapped we are by our sin.
|Save the Date|
Please join us for three upcoming events as we welcome new staff and send staff to new ventures with our blessing.
