Transition Team Update

This Sunday (February 17) Joe Long will be speaking on – Excitement in the Church – Revelation 3:14-22

An Encouraging Word: 1 Corinthians 13:4 – 8: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong doing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.
