This Week’s Top Ten!

2. This Sunday
Join us in worship THIS SUNDAY, January 21st
Word & Table Service at 8am | Modern Service at 9:15am |
Traditional Service at 11:00am
God comes to us differently, sometimes surprisingly, all across our years. God embraces us, comforts us, challenges us, and sometimes God does all those things at the same time.  Have you heard from God lately?  Who knows what God might put before you, and us, next. Join us Sunday as we explore the story of Abraham and Sarah in Genesis 18:1-15. It’s all about God’s surprising call and what happens when we trust and say yes.
