The Devil is in the Details

“You squeeze and crinkle the toothpaste tube even though you know it bothers your spouse. You complain about the dirty dishes instead of putting them in the dishwasher.

Session Summary, February 2017

Your elders met together to pray for the congregation and to lead the church last Monday. We discussed the liturgy and are considering making some changes.
