IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY
"Blind Spot"
So far in our controversial topics series, we’ve talked about issue after issue that causes folks get hot under the collar. But this week, we’re taking up an issue that everyone is a lot less passionate about – because no one thinks it applies to them!

ο»ΏJoin us this Sunday as we pull this controversial issue out of our blind spots and into the light!
