Kingdom Calling – This Month
A new name for an age-old mission … being a part of bringing God’s kingdom here and now in our community. This month, we’ll feature an assortment of videos and testimonies on this topic (on Sundays and on the City). We’ll culminate in highlighting a local ministry that is bringing God’s kingdom here in our community and ways to get involved. The goal? Let’s remember how God is at work using us in his cosmic plan to redeem and restore, and seek to respond to His Spirit prompting us in this area!
