Online Worship, Sunday, February 14
365 Days of Love
Rev. Kristina Church
Gathering Music 10:25am - Service 10:30am

We are social creatures whose hearts need to love and be loved. Yet often our vision of love is too small. How can we expand and condition our hearts to include the whole world? Is is possible to love not just our families and friends, but the strangers we haven't met yet, and even our enemies?
