Bless Your Neighbor church wide outreach October 14-28
During our outreach this month, we want to intentionally connect with those God has placed around us and ask, “Who is God calling me to bless?” Be thinking of who in your life you are already influencing, or could be influencing, toward God. Stay tuned for info from Pastor Jack this Sunday on how to participate and check out the bulletin flyer!
