STEPHEN MINISTRY: In difficult times, God’s love is especially precious to us, and it is very important to know someone who cares. Our congregation has trained Stephen Ministers who offer a ministry of Christian caring. To find out more about receiving a Stephen Minister’s care, write “Stephen Ministry” on your Connection Card and place it in the offering basket on Sunday or call Art or Rose Flatray at 805.987.1428 for more information.
THIS SUNDAY we look at Galatians 5:1-15 in our study through the book of Galatians, “True Freedom”. You might want to read it in preparation. We’re going to see exactly what we’ve been set free from as well as what we’ve been set free to do. Paul is not only committed to the Galatians’ not losing their freedom but also to not abusing it either.
Looking forward to being with you,
