Summer 2016 Series: Compassionate Outreach

This summer we are exploring what the Bible has to say to us about our calling to show God’s compassion in a needy world. We will talk about meeting spiritual, emotional and material needs, and consider what God wants us to do as a church. Several of the elders will be joining Bob to preach different aspects of this truth.
