Sunday, February 23rd

We are excited to continue our series, "I Still Love My Church," this Sunday! Rich will build on the principles he presented last year with, "Worship Joyfully," and we will continue to look to the future. We'll have another "I Love My Church" testimony from Michael Short. The worship team has prepared some great music and the Choir will open the service with a powerful reminder! We know we all will be blessed as we gather together!
