Vision & Plan – Questions to work through

Vision & Plan - Questions to work through

On May 12 and 19, Nic Gibson, our Preaching Pastor, gave us all something to think about in terms of how God views His Church and how we are a part of what He’s doing.
This was a handout that people got to walk through while Nic was giving his sermon on May 19.

Have you thought about the questions yet? What is God revealing to you?

Feels Like Home – Lori Reil’s Story
