Finding yourself falling…

Friends, it’s hard to believe that fall is here, but there’s no doubting that change is in the air.  As you can see from the blurbs below, we’re falling back into our ministries at the church, as well.

If we aren’t already experiencing a whiplash from the lazy days of summer to the frenetic fall pace, Jesus has some jolting words for us in Luke 14:25-33.  In order to follow Jesus, we have to hate our families, carry our cross, and give away our possessions.  What?!?

Don’t worry.  There’s more to the story.  Join us Sunday to ease back into the fall – and into the recognition that – what we do matters only in light of what Jesus has already done for us.

Hope to see you Sunday to learn more!
