Also, thank you to those of you who started attending early worship at 9:00 a.m.!  I want to give another shout out to everyone to start attending the early worship at 9:00 a.m.  Let’s love our community enough to start

explore faith in Christ.

P.S. If you want to read ahead for week #8 of 10, we are talking about "Knowing God’s Love" from 1 John 4:7-5:3.
