Have you ever wondered what it is to do the “work” of God? Well, this week we return to the Gospel of John and begin to explore the challenges of following Jesus. Being a follower of Jesus, and living in community are both challenges that we can’t navigate on our own. We need each other. I encourage you to engage in this journey of “followship” and “fellowship” with us. So come, join us as we worship the triune God together. In case you missed it, you can find the service from last week by clicking HERE.
