When Worlds Collide 

Our fall series will be focusing on the Kingdom of God.  We will be working through various passages that address the nature, purpose, power, and application of this powerful reality and its ability to give purpose and meaning for our lives.  This Sundaywe will begin by introducing our fall series and providing a biblical foundation for seeing God as King over all people due to his duel works of creation and redemption.  Please prepare for Sunday’smessage by reading Genesis 1-3 and reflecting on the following question: What are you hoping or longing for in life?

God bless and be sure to make every effort to join us in worshipthis Sunday!
