Connect in Christ in 2021
Being a Christian, doing God’s will and not our own, challenges us each and every day.
The wonderful difference as we journey through this life is that God is with us.
We are never alone.
We do not have to endure the challenges of this life without Christ.
God wants us to give our burdens over to Him.
We praise Him for this promise to us.
As we press forward into this new year, stay connected in Christ through 2021 in worship, in fellowship, and in service.
Worship Connect. 2021
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth,
for the Father wants such people to worship him. John 4:23
Meaningful to our faith, worship is a time for us to praise and worship Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
