Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
This week, we participated in the annual National Back to Church Sunday movement, which encourages people to come back and invite others to church.
Also, Pastor Christopher continued his sermon series, "Welcome Home". This series is based on stories in the Bible in which no matter how far, no matter what's happened, God makes a way and welcomes us home - as we are - in pieces, feeling down, curious, on the run - not to scold us, but to embrace us, and stitch us, families and more back together.
There will be no new episode of Christopher's Chat this week. Please check back next week for a new episode of Christopher's Chat.
