Matthew 4:11

Welcome, Guests

We are so glad you are with us today. If you are a fellow believer, our earnest hope is that you will be spiritually enriched and edified by your experience here today. And if you are not yet a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ, our prayer is that today some influence here may draw you toward Christ.

Volunteers are at the Welcome Center to assist you with any needs or questions you may have.

Sermon - Jim Andrews, Pastor

The Missing Piece

John 5:30-47

Word From the Pastor

People put forward many excuses for refusing to receive Jesus as their Savior. Strip those away and the real reason is the same today as it was from the beginning: they won’t hear Him because they don’t want to and they don’t want to because they have no desire for Him. No big mystery.
