Today’s Sermon

“I want to believe, but…what about science?” -Pastor Ryan

 


Announcements

I want to believe, but… It can be difficult to believe in a God we cannot see. We wonder why God didn’t answer our prayers, why God allows suffering, or why we can’t feel His presence. God may not meet all your expectations—but that’s good news! Today we’ll be talking about science and faith. Our messages are posted on the church website and can be found on Spotify. Everyone has questions, and church should be the safest place to ask them!

Bereans Potatoes – The Bereans is the longest-running small group at our church, but their ministries reach much further into our communities! They support individuals and families in need by doing meals, gas cards, welcome baskets, and so much more! They raise money by selling 50 lb bags of potatoes for $8. Speak to Marilyn or Dave to get yours!
