Stonecatchers Continues


Last Sunday we started our new series about being “stonecatchers” in a world that is so quick to throw stones at one another. Join in worship this Sunday as we focus on Luke 12:13-21 and the stones of greed and grumbling we throw at one another. The bells will be playing and new members are joining!
