Hi Friends,

Where is God when life hurts? If He is in control of all things, then why does he let so many bad things happen? Why is there senseless suffering? These questions are some that are pretty personal, vulnerable and real for me.  Looking forward to seeing how God is going to meet us.

Would love to have you join us online or outdoors at Front and Mifflin at 10am on Sunday!

Pastor Jeff

Call to Worship 10am

Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings!  (Psa 61:1-4 ESV)
