The Lord’s Day, February 18, 2018

Genesis 21:1-24

“Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth;
unite my heart to fear your name.”  
                                                       Psalm 86:11     

Speak, O Lord

“Jesus and the Father, Equal, United and Sovereign”
John 5:18-29
This morning we will see the equality, unity and sovereignty of Jesus and the Father,
so that we will rest in His resurrection for eternal life.

Family Group Ministry
This is where we get to know each other and meet one another’s needs.
Each family group is a diverse group of Christians within our larger church family who grow together in our love for Christ and His church.

Family groups are for everyone regardless of age, marital status or spiritual maturity. Each group is a small flock within our flock, a refuge for comfort, strength and growth led by a biblically-qualified shepherd into fellowship, prayer, singing, Bible study and the practice of each person’s spiritual gifts.
