This Week’s Worship Service
This Sunday Steve Dighton will be preaching on The First Day of Church (Acts 2:1-4, 14-21). Today’s songs are Oh Taste And See, Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus, Your Name, and Shout To The Lord.
Pastoral Search Team Update
“Let us not grow weary while doing good” (Gal. 6:9) is the verse of the week as the PST attempts to manage the demands of life, while not losing sight of giving due process to every pastoral candidate. Thankfully, the Lord promises to sustain us in our efforts. Weariness and uncertainty are not comfortable places to be, yet faith in God, not certainty is what pleases our Lord. He is a “rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Heb. 11:6) Please continue to pray for strength and discernment as we seek Him. Thank you!
