I can appreciate that a cold winter day invites us to find warmth elsewhere, like at New Member Sunday! Today we definitely celebrated God’s goodness on display with laughter and singing, hope-filled stories, full acceptance as God’s beloved, and of course sharing blessings with each other. Thanks for being church, friends!!! ... See MoreSee Less
