April 29, 2021  

As Christians, we live in the "already" and the "not yet" - in the tension of knowing Jesus has invited us to join him in the life to come but still living in the here-and-now.

Join us as we wrap up The Faith We Sing series as we explore the importance of hope for eternity and the urgency for living today through the hymn "I'll Fly Away."
