Hi Christ Church family,

I’m looking forward to worshipping with you all this Sunday!

How does faith in God make a difference in the everyday stuff of our lives?  If God is the center of the universe, then how can we live with Him at the center of our lives?  If God is real, then what?  These are kinds of questions that we will be looking at as we continue our series in  Ecclesiastes.  God has great things in store for us as we learn to live with Him more in our lives!  Hope you can join us and send the link to a friend.

Looking forward to the best day of the week!

Pastor Jeff

P.s. There are some special guests coming on around 9:50am, so open the livestream earlier 😉
