House Rules: Love One Another

Aug 21, 2022  Elisha Freeman  This morning we are starting a series of lessons entitle ‘House Rules’.

With this growth comes the need for us to stretch and accommodate. To that end, what do we, as a church, live by to ensure that the purpose of the church is met? This morning our first house rule is: Love.
