The Word Today

God has given us His commandments not to harm us but to bless us. When we obey God and seek to understand and live by His Word, we can have joy knowing that His commandments are in our best interest. 

Coming Up

Forgiveness Challenge

In his sermon on Sunday, George reminded us that carrying bitterness towards one person will make you struggle to be at peace with anyone, and he challenged us to work intentionally on forgiving others. He closed his message by encouraging our church family to identify one person they need to forgive and pray for them by name. Have you taken this step? During your time in prayer, call that person by name and reflect on what God has done and is doing in your heart.
