I Wonder?

Do you have questions or wonderings about Jesus, faith, theology, or the Bible that you've always wanted to have answered? Well now's your chance! Starting in mid-January, we are beginning a sermon series called I wonder? where we will attempt to do just that. Everyone who asks questions will remain anonymous and no question is too silly or too serious. Kids and Youth are welcome to submit their questions as well! Send me an email, give me a call, or find me after worship and let me know what you are wondering about! - Pastor Josh
