by May 27, 2018Cultivate, Sermon

It’s easy to come into a church building, sing songs, listen to a message, and walk away thinking this is all there is to worshiping God.

Choose Your Service

Serving isn’t glamorous. Giving of our time and energy can seem like an inconvenience. But it is never a waste of time. In God’s economy, the goodness we experience in our lives is always greatly multiplied when we choose to follow him and walk in the good works he...

Dig Deeper
