Prayer Corner: Following the Stream of Living Water | Healing
“…But streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.” (Genesis 2:6)
This week we will claim God’s promises in baptism for Cole S. We will hear God speak from Ecclesiastes 11 on some uncommon but freedom-enhancing wisdom that comes from admitting what we don’t know.
Evening Worship! We will gather at 5 pm this Sunday for a service of singing the Psalms. The Psalms is God’s inspired prayer book that gives direction on how to express our hearts to him in ways that honor him & bless us.
Next week, we will hear God speak from Ecclesiastes 11 & 12 on the wisdom of living old when we are young.
