PREPARE & CONNECT

This Week's Sermon: We'll continue our series on 1 Timothy with a sermon from Joshua on 1 Timothy 1:12-20. 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!
