The Gift Leads to Our Giving

Sunday Worship November 18, 2018 Do you get stuck thinking something is “yours?” Have you ever taken a moment to think about the fact that everything is God’s and then He gives it to you?

Join us as we take a deep dive into God’s grace and the mess we make…

September 23, 2018: Connect to God’s Church
