Ensemble Sunday

This Sunday the Ensemble will be leading us in worship.  Pastor Rick will be speaking on the second Chapter of Crazy Love: "you might not finish this chapter".  

We're excited about the births of Scott and Leigh Anne's baby Sadie and Eric and Mary's baby Declan.  Please keep them in prayer as everyone adjust to the Joy and challenge's of being new parents.  Also keep all the other expectant mothers in your prayers as it's going to be very busy and exciting over the next few months!

Please be in prayer for Rob Andrea and his family.  They are facing another trial in life as he is going for emergency brain surgery.  God has already done miracles in their life and we're praying for another. 

Thanks to all the ladies who put on a fantastic baby shower for Gemma and Naomi.
