Current Sunday Message Series- 05/12/2013
Water has long been used to describe life. We speak of “smooth sailing” when things are going well, and of “being in deep water” when life is challenging. We even speak of “testing the water” as we navigate change. You won’t want to miss any part of this five-week series that explores narratives in God’s Word that involve navigating the rough waters of life.
Join us Sundays, May 12 – June 9 @ 9:30AM & 11AM, for this powerful message series.
