Need to Know
Here are the three top things to know this week:
Sunday Recap: August 11, 2019
Last week we considered the line from the Lord's Prayer "forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." Have you experienced God’s character, his mercy, grace, favor and steadfast love in your life? This is the only appeal we have before Him when we are confronted with our own sinfulness. Click the links below to read or listen more.
Conversations with God
In our summer sermon series we will be asking some big questions. Why does God not answer our prayers sometimes? If and when He does, why does it take so long? If you've missed a sermon and want a recap, we have great notes from our pastors on the website. Check out a few here!
