SERVICE TIMES
9:00AM | 10:30AM | 12:00PM

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 23
B-SIDES: The Man
The Gospels are full of stories of people in crisis (or at the very least hurting) and are often starting to give up on life or give up on hope. In a last ditch effort, some of these people reach out to Jesus and have an incredible encounter.
This Sunday, we’ll learn about the story of Jairus - the leader of the synagogue who came to Jesus begging Him to save his dying daughter. When you are afraid of the future, Jesus invites you to lay down your fears and ask you to believe that He can change things.
