SUNDAY WORSHIP
JANUARY 5
EPIPHANY SUNDAY
“Spirituality”
1 Peter 2:2-5
 
We must understand that Christianity isn’t a change of clothes we put on for Sunday morning and take off at noon. When we were baptized we “put on Christ,” and from that day forward we are never to “take Him off.” God wants us to grow and mature into the likeness of His Son Jesus Christ. That doesn’t just happen on its own. We must desire to grow!
 
Pastor Ezekiel preaching. Tree of Life Praise Band at 9:00. Chancel Choir at 10:30.

Sunday, January 5 | 11:30 a.m. | Schneeberger Hall
