Title and Topic
In his Sabbatical message June 5, our rector taught that, “Sabbath is the cornerstone of discipleship”; therefore, we encourage you, your life groups, and your families to join us as we take some “time in” with Jesus to “rest in God and receive His best” this summer.
We will return to our regular Toolbox format in September.
2 Samuel 11:26-12:10,13-15
