Wednesday Recap- Advent

This past Sunday, as we slowly emerged from our food comas and tried to forget what happened in the Swamp on Saturday, we celebrated the beginning of a new church year. There was no big ball drop, and we didn’t invite Dick Clark, Ryan Seacrest, and the NewKidsOnTheBlock/BackstreetBoys Reunion Band to host and perform on […]

Wednesday Recap- The Greatest Hits, All On Two Tablets! (Exodus 15-20)

God’s people have finally made it out of Egypt thanks to God’s mighty work.
