Fixer Upper – Community

The people of Israel found themselves living in a foreign land, surrounded by strange customs and even stranger people. But in the midst of their exile, God gave them some curious instructions- instruction that surely raised some eyebrows from God’s people as they tried to live faithfully in a distant land.

There’s always that one family member that makes life difficult. And with that comes our sense of responsibility to somehow solve the problem.

Repairing God’s House

In the Bible, the upkeep and repair of the temple was essential. It was considered God’s house, where God dwelled. God dwells in our worship spaces as well. Join us this Sunday as we begin to take important steps towards the renovation of our Sanctuary.
