New sermon series starts Sunday
Join us Sunday as we kick off a new sermon series, “The Model Church.” We will be walking through the book of 1 Thessalonians, looking at a church Paul described as a “model” to others at the time. What made this church so special? What can we learn from them? We will unpack Biblical truths we can apply to our lives today.
