Reflections- "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline." - 2 Timothy 1:7
The Pastor's Perspective-
I am happy to announce that Judy Goodwin will be back this fall leading our worship choir! We have come up with an arrangement that will allow Judy to have the flexibility she needs to go be with family and still lead the worship choir. We will look forward to some beautiful anthems from the choir this fall!
We continue our summer series through the book of 1 Peter this Sunday, beginning another 2-part mini-series from 1 Peter 3:8-12, Diffusing Conflict in Relationships.
