PREPARE & CONNECT

This Week's Sermon: Erik will begin our summer series on 1 Timothy with a sermon on 1 Timothy 1:1-11. We invite you to read ahead as a way to prepare for Sunday's service.

Caring for the Vaughans: For continued updates on how Rosalie Vaughan is doing with her treatment–and for ways we can all help care for her and her family–make sure to visit her CaringBridge site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/rosalievaughan. You will need to register with the site to see updates. Thank you for your continued prayer and support for the Vaughans!

City Church Basics: Our next session of City Church Basics will take place on Friday, June 17th (7-9:30pm) and Saturday, June 18th (9:30am to noon) at Grace Covenant.
