Announcements, Oct. 9, 2015
If you missed last Sunday’s message on fighting temptation by Will Hawk I highly encourage you to listen to it here. Very good!
This week we’ll be back in the Sermon on the Mount and one of the more recognizable passages in the Bible, Matthew 5:13–16. In this text, Jesus says Christians should be like salt and light in a world that is decaying and dark. Clearly, there is much for us to think about and apply to our life together as a local church. Take some time to read the text and pray that the Lord will help us become a more effective witness to our neighbors and the nations.
Grace and peace,
**The church offices will be closed on Monday, Oct. 12,
