8-30-18 Midweek Message

Do you ever find yourself scared when stepping out into something new?  On Sunday, our guests – Jonathan, Brittany, and Christina – shared with our young people about how they’re getting ready to start a year of service through the YAV program.  Stepping out sure takes courage!

Honestly, it can down-right be terrifying.  And, you don’t even have to be in a foreign land.  Thankfully, Christ’s healing can be found whenever we step out… and even when it’s terrifying.  Especially when it’s terrifying! I hope you’ll take a few moments to listen to Sunday’s sermon that explores a tough text inviting us to move From Fear to Freedom.

This Sunday, we’ll be invited to rest from our labors as we explore Jesus’ invitation to let go of our weariness in Matthew 11:25-30.  Hope to see you there!
