Be with us in our time of worship as we seek the love it takes to walk in the ways of God’s Son. We strive to love our enemies and bless those who wrong us. We search for joy in treating others with all the same respect and goodness with which we hope to be treated. We want our every word and deed to make known that we are God’s beloved children and vessels of God’s love.
