Also needed are helpers to take gathered donations to the Storage Unit. If you have a truck or large SUV and a little spare time to share after the 10am service, they could really use your help.

Sunday Sermon

Sunday, June 16

The Core of Your Being

The Rev. Dr. Mark Hargreaves examines St. Paul's traveling ministry, why Corinth's "super apostles" dissed him so much, and how he gets through it. That inner strength, that confidence, purpose, and love at the core of his being can be yours too, and can get you through your life as well. 

Watch or read the sermon HERE.
