1 Corinthians 12
As you are turning to 1 Corinthians 12, I need to tell you that if you missing our Sunday night special series this month; you are missing something special. Last Sunday night we had to bring in extra chairs to accommodate the crowd.
Our focus is on the Son of God: The Life of Jesus in us! We're learning how the life of Jesus in us is a deal changer when it comes to temptation and suffering.

The final night of the series is August 3rd when we will be showing the Son of God move from start to finish. What a great way to conclude this special Sunday night series. I hope to see you tonight at 6:00 PM in the Gym!
