Sunday :: Worship / Fellowship
Sunday, October 28th
Our current sermon series is called Distractions. Life is full of Distractions that can throw us off course. This has always been the case, but Distractions seem to be growing both in number and in their power to steal our focus and throw us off track. This is certainly true when it comes to following God in the everydayness of life. Focus takes time, attention, discipline, and perseverance. God’s Word can help us understand what kinds of Distractions steal our attention. God’s Word also helps us shift our attention back to the things that matter most.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
