I’m, Here but you won’t be

I’m here, but you won’t be.
I’ll preach but the building will be empty.
We were going to add another block to our Life Center board symbolizing another $40,000 has been received.
We have assembled amazing gift bags that would’ve been handed out to all visitors today.
We had some first time guests make reservations to be with us.
So much good was going to happen in this place today, but it can’t.
We are an assembly unable to assemble; and I am missing you all very much. Until we can meet again, May the Lord bless you and be with those of us who are sick and quarantined. Always remember church – your pastor loves you.
For today’s sermon “Coming Attraction”, you may either listen to it or watch it online


A few announcements to keep you in the loop.
