Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
This week, Pastor Christopher began a new sermon series, "I Will Follow". Through this new series, Pastor Christopher is seeking to show the challenge and blessing of being a Christ-follower. Most Christians are believers, many are not followers. To be a follower involves action, risk, depending on the Spirit, and sacrifice. This series will inspire people to take their faith to another level and beyond the pews.
Pastor Christopher also did a special prayer of blessing for all the VBS leaders and volunteers. Please keep all the children and helpers in your prayers throughout this week. Pastor Christopher also discussed VBS in this week's episode of Christopher's Chat:
