I can’t wait to worship with you this Sunday.  Pastor Ian is bringing the word and it’s going to be a good one!  Please review the announcements below to stay connected,  Also, take some time to read through our liturgy and please pray over each element that God would meet us richly during it.  If you are not joining us in person, but feel like you have a prophetic impression to share with the church, please share it with me.  I would love to hear from you.

Excited about how God is going to meet us!

Pastor Jeff
