Good afternoon everyone! Today's message was "Healing for the Soul and Body". This message was about how confessing our sins brings healing. But, carrying around sin and guilt and keeping it inside causes us stress and harm - spiritually and physically. We hope you take the time to listen to that message in this week's worship service and episode of Christopher's Chat.
We pray that everyone stays safe during the upcoming snowstorm that will impact our area on Tuesday with 12-18 inches of snow.
Please be advised that Pastor Christopher will be on break from March 17th-March 24th. If you have any pastoral care needs, please contact Julie Kooistra or Frank Arnone.
Pastor Christopher offers a weekly video message entitled "Christopher's Chat" to summarize his sermon series. Below is today's message about the root of sin.
