🗓 THIS WEEK 10/25 A NEW SERIES BEGINS...
📝October 25 // David Washburn// MESSAGE: The Lampstand
The golden lampstand was the only source of light in the holy place in the Tabernacle, and it was to remain lit as a reminder that God was always with His people. Over the next four weeks, we’re going to consider God’s continuous presence in our lives and how that presence informs and shapes us to reflect God’s loving goodness to our community.
David will be preaching at both Celebration (9:30) and Nexus (10:45)!
